Research groups

Biomedical Imaging
The Biomedical Imaging Group is active in Experimental and Translational Biomedical Imaging, with main focuses on Magnetic Resonance and Optical Imaging. The lab is equipped with a MRI Tomograph (Bruker, Biospec 4.7 T) and with an Optical Images (IVIS Spectrum, PerkinElmer).
Task Force on Renal Carcinoma
Evaluation of traditional and emerging tumour entities sec. WHO 2016.
Centro di ricerca sullo sviluppo motorio nell'infanzia

Diagnostics during solid organ transplantation.
Histopathology and immunophenotyping for scoring functionm of organs and typing neoplastic nodules to avoid malignant trasmission of neoplasia.
Digital Pathology - Telepathology
The research group promotes the use of digital systems for routinely diagnostics on ex-glass slides for second and expert opinion
Epigenomics and gene-nutrient interactions

Pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacovigilance
The research group on Pharmacovigilance and pharmacoepidemiology includes researcher studying botyh the efficacy and the risk profiles of drugs in the population. In this field the group is involved in both national and international research projects and in italian surveillance systems on adverse drug reactions and adverse events following immunization (AEFI). The group include the Regional Pharmacovigilance Centre of Veneto Region and of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano.
The research group study application of the interphase cytogenetic FISH analysis on formalin-fixed and paraffin embedded tissue for diagnostics, prognostication and predictiveness to targeted therapies in carcinoma primary arising from the urogenital tract (i.e. renal cell carcinoma), in breast carcinoma (Her-2 locus gene) and ALK/ROS-1 riarrangements in lung carcinoma; moreover application of FISH technique for 1p/19q abnormalities in tumours from the central nervous system is constantly performed. Prof. Guido Martignoni and Dr. Anna Caliò partecipate in the research group from more than a decade. The group published more than 100 manuscripts by using FISH analysis as primary mehtod of cancer discovery.

Nanomaterials Research Group
The Nanomaterials Research Group (NRG) mainly deals with: - Luminescent inorganic nanomaterials: preparation, structural, morphological and spectroscopic investigation (absorption and luminescence in the ultraviolet, visible and infrared spectral regions) of inorganic nanomaterials, also of colloidal nature, activated with luminescent lanthanide ions. - Multifunctional colloidal nanostructures for applications in biotechnology and nanomedicine: development of organic-inorganic nanocomposites of colloidal nature for theranostics in biotechnology and nanomedicine, in particular for optical imaging, nuclear magnetic resonance (MRI), nanothermometry, photothermal therapy and photodynamics and investigations on their functional properties. - Surface functionalization of inorganic nanomaterials: chemical attack of ligands or compounds on the surface of inorganic nanomaterials to confer additional functionality (eg solubility, colloidal stability, biocompatibility, bioconjugation, targeting, sensing, controlled release of substances).
Quality of communication in healthcare
The main research interests of the Unit are 1) Psychiatric Epidemiology and Health Services Evaluation; 2) Inequalities and Social Determinants of Mental Health, and 3) Economic Evaluation of Mental Health Care.
