Fields of Research
Main current field of research: 
  • 1999-2012 Characterization of platelet function in animals of veterinary interest (aggregometry, adhesion assay, flow cytometry); secondary fileds of interest: i) role of enzymes activity in colostrum and in milk of buffalo, goat and ewe, ii) activity of enzymes in seminal plasma of stallion and their correlations with fertility, evaluation of stress marker in buffalo (cortisol in hair, faeces, saliva) in relation to animal welfare
  • 2012 up to now 
  • -Characterization of ovine and human mesenchymal stem cell; Analysis of expression of CXCR4 and aquaporin 1 (Aqp1) in ovine mesenchymal stem cell; Role of Aqp1 in migration and homing of mesenchymal stem cell; Study on leptin effect on mesenchymal stem cells after oxidative stress.
  • - Characterization of neuropeptides in gastrointestinal tract of different animal species
  • - Studies on aquaporin distribution and function in the gut of human and animal species; Study on aquaporin function in animal models of hepatic steatosis and diarrhoea
