Laboratory Biomedical Technologies

TEB Laboratory performs multidisciplinary research in classic and molecular radiobiology, experimental oncology and carcinogenesis, molecular immunology, molecular basis of chronic inflammatory diseases, biological effects and clinical applications of electromagnetic fields, and on the use of natural compounds for human and animal health protection.

The laboratory pursues the study of low-dose ionizing radiation effects, specifically regarding the risk esteem from environmental, cosmic, occupational and medical exposure. Moreover, cellular and molecular mechanisms related to cancer and non-cancer effects of radiation are evaluated, developing radiation high-sensitivity animal models, as well as specific in vitro models, in order to improve low-dose exposure risk quantification.
Research on thermal and non-thermal effects of electromagnetic fields are carried out, along with design and development of experimental models and exposure systems,  therapeutic and diagnostic applications, besides the evaluation of exposure standards related to general population and occupational health protection.
The laboratory is involved in the study of immune response regulatory mechanisms, so as to identify new therapeutic targets, understand environmental factors’ effects, characterize the alterations responsible for immune-mediate disorders (autoimmunity, allergies, inflammatory diseases). By the integration of in vivo and in vitro models, experimental protocols and innovative immune-therapeutic tools for cancer therapy,  vaccines and chronic inflammatory diseases’ diagnosis and treatment  are developed.
Furthermore, a specific research line analyzes the role of a natural plant extract in inflammatory and repair processes  involved in wound healing.
