Topic Description Research area
innate immunity The innate immune system, also known as the non-specific immune system or in-born immunity system is an important subsystem of the overall immune system that comprises the cells and mechanisms that defend the host from infection by other organisms. The cells of the innate system recognize and respond to pathogens in a similar way, but, unlike the adaptive immune system, the system does not provide long-lasting immunity to the host. Innate immune systems provide immediate defense against infection, and are found in all classes of plant and animal life. Immunology

Natural Immunity Natural immunity is the evolutionarily older component of immunity that is based primarily, albeit not exclusively, on the function of professional phagocytes and which is characterized by the ability to respond to pathogens without requiring a previous encounter with the same pathogens. . This is why it is also called natural immunity. Immunology

inflammation Studies on the mechanisms utilized by innate immune cells to modulate inflammatory and immune responses. In particular, the studies are focused in gaining new insights on the role of neutrophils and monocyte/macrophages in autoimmune diseases and cancer. Immunology
Infiammazione e tumori nfiammazione e cancro vanno spesso di pari passo. Da un lato il tumore scatena una risposta infiammatoria, dall'altro proprio il contesto infiammatorio puo' alimentare l'aggressività del tumore e la disseminazione delle metastasi. La mappa dei punti in cui processi infiammatori e tumorali si interconnettono e agiscono in concerto è in corso di esplorazione. Immunology
