Our group is focused on the search, identification and functional characterisation of biomarkers as determinants of prognosis and/or diagnosis of several pathologies associated to obesity such diabetes type 1 and 2, cardiovascular disease, cancer, etc. We are also aimed to get some understanding on the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in a given biomarker regulation.

Our studies are based on translational research, joining on both basic research and clinical research.
