Research interests

    The main purpose of the research conducted in the laboratory of Dr Rivolta regards the investigation of alterations in the physiology of the cell plasma membrane. In particular,
    - the study of the dysfunctions of ion channel currents with the goal to elucidate novel molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying human diseases (channelopathies);
    - the study of the effect of the interaction of the plasma membrane with nanoparticles functionalized for drug delivery;
    - the study of the sensing mechanism of the oxygen tension (pO2) at the level of alveolar cells plasma membrane with the goal to understand the remodeling of the lung parenchyma.
