The research developed by the HIHD group aims at studying the modulatory role of hormones and inflammatory mediators in the mechanisms underlying common diseases in developed countries. Major goals include the identification of novel therapeutic targets, molecular diagnostic markers, and new pharmacological agents for these diseases. Integrative studies are assisted by the multidisciplinary background of the research team, which includes experts in basic, epidemiological and clinical studies. The HIHD group is organized in four subgroups encompassing the following research areas:

ENDOCRINOLOGY AND REPRODUCTION

CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES

NEUROPROTECTION AND NEURODEGENERATION

HUMAN INTEGRATIVE IMMUNOLOGY
