Mitochondrial-endothelial function in metabolic diseases

This line investigates alterations in mitochondrial-endothelial function, mitochondrial dynamics, autophagy, reticular stress and the inflammasome in the inflammatory processes associated with metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and obesity. We also evaluate the effects of mitochondrial-targeted antioxidants and nanoparticles with antioxidant capacity on the molecular mechanisms that characterise the aforementioned conditions.
