Proposals for thesis
The research proposals for thesis projects have as a common topic the characterization of the immune modulating properties of bacterial factors produced by pathogens responsible for chronic diseases, in particular Helicobacter pylori. The most interesting factors will be used as tools to contribute to the knowledge of the physiological mechanisms that modulate the signaling pathways in immune cells.

During the thesis work the student will have the opportunity to learn: H. pylori culture, isolation of immune cells from human blood, infection and transfection of macrophages, protein ubiquitination assay, immunoprecipitation, SDS-PAGE and western blot, immunofluorescence, qRT-PCR, flow cytometry, ELISA, antigen presentation assay.

Research areas
The research interest of our group is the characterization of bacterial factors able to modulate the activity of immune cells, with the aim of defining the immune-based mechanisms responsible for the long-term survival of bacteria responsible for chronic disorders (i.e., Helicobacter pylori). By taking advantage of these bacterial products, the research group has also the ambitious aim of contributing to the knowledge of the physiological mechanisms that modulate the signaling pathways in immune cells.
