Pieri Lab

We are housed at the Department of Life and Health Sciences, Human Biology Program, of the University of Nicosia, Cyprus

Research

We study digestion and nutrient transport through the gastrointestinal tract in physiological and pathophysiological conditions using cell culture and animal models focusing on peptides and microRNAs. We are also interested in inherited kidney diseases and the molecular mechanisms behind Collagen IV inherited nephropathies. Finally, we investigate the contribution of individual patient genotype and biomarkers (microRNAs) in the treatment of various pathologies
