Research interests

    At the present, he is studying and characterizing the proteome of the human renal cortex. Moreover, identification of differentially expressed protein in renal cell carcinoma versus normal tissues, in their primary culture and in subcellular fractions is afforded. More recently, he is evaluating the proteome/peptidome of human Renal Cell Carcinoma and of Diabetic Type 1 patients with nephropathy biological fluids (serum, plasma and urine) by LC-ESI-MS/MS and MALDI-TOF/TOF aimed to biomarkers discovery for early diagnosis and prognosis. He is also implementing in his lab and optimizing the very advanced Mass Spectrometry Imaging technology applied to various diseases e.g. Renal Cell Carcinoma, thyroid tumors and CKD patients.
