Main projects

  • Determine in rodents the impact of hypercaloric environment and neuronal signals on hypothalamic microglial function, to search for effective targets that can restore microglial function upon hypercaloric challenges.
  • Study in rodents the impact of microglial derived factors on neuronal function, to search for neuronal targets that can rescue neuronal function in an hypercaloric environment.
  • Translational studies on human brain neuron-microglia network.
