About

I am currently working on the role that several GPCRs have on energy homeostasis, at both central and peripheral level, and their relevance in obesity and diabetes pathophysiology. Specifically, I am focused on cannabinoid receptors and other GPCRs with cannabinoid sensitivity, such as GPR55. Indeed, I am interested in the molecular mechanisms by which these receptors modulate the cellular response and how these processes could be targeted to fight against obesity and diabetes.
