Welcome message of Prof. Ciro Isidoro

Welcome to the Laboratory of Molecular Pathology headed by Prof. Ciro Isidoro.
The laboratory was established in the Department of Health Sciences (formerly Dipartimento di Scienze Mediche) at the Università del Piemonte Orientale “Amedeo Avogadro” in Novara in September 1996.
Our mission is to study the role and the involvement of lysosomal proteolysis in the pathogenesis of diseases. Main areas include:
  1. the biogenesis and pathophysiological function of Cathepsin D;
  2. the regulation of the autophagy-lysosomal pathway in cancer and in neurodegeneration;
  3. the nanobioimaging of vesicular traffic defects.
(ongoing projects are described in the LAB ACTIVITIES/RESEARCH section).
Visitors willing to visit our laboratory and students/postDoc wishing to graduate or work with us are welcome (please contact us via e-mail).
