Pathophysiological mechanisms of food intake regulation

Development and mechanism of action of stabilized analogs of food intake regulating neuropeptides and ghrelin for potential treatment of food intake disorders.

Our research is focused on peptides involved in the regulation of food intake and processes related to obesity, diabetes and neurodegeneration. It combines biochemical, pharmacological and physiological methods and aims at clarifying the relationships among peptides involved in development of obesity in order to design possible therapeutics.
