Identification of biomarkers associated with the onset or progression of different types of diseases.

Analysis of proteins structure and their modifications by different technical approaches to support the discovery of new functions and drug targets


Glycosylation is the post-translational modification of proteins that gives the most variability to them. The glycosylation of proteins is a very complex process that involves a great number of enzymes and reactions. Moreover, glycosylation is involved in many processes of cell life from signaling to single enzyme activity. The study of protein glycosylation can give important information to understand many cellular processes and to develop new therapeutic approaches
