Main research areas:1. Study of the structure-function relationships of mammalian Odorant binding proteins focussing on their folding-unfolding process and on the contribution of these proteins to the defence mechanisms against cellular oxidative stress. 2. In-vitro study of the effects of bioactive molecules on the biology of epithelial mammary cells and of endocrine cells of reproductive organs. 3. The biology of mesenchymal stem cells and their clinical application in veterinary medicine, with a particular interest in the following topics: a. set-up of optimized protocols for domestic animals MSC expansion and molecular characterization, b. clinical association between MSC and platelet-rich-plasma derived scaffolds.
