research InterestS

Molecular adaptations in models of prokaryotes and eukaryotes from extreme environments; vulnerability to climate change. Impacts on ecosystems of fast climate change occurring in the polar regions, and pressures arising from global change, invasive species, human impacts, and extreme events. Production of changes in individuals, populations and communities by synergistic stresses. Multidisciplinary studies of current biological processes in polar ecosystems, to define tolerance limits/thresholds and thereby determine resistance and resilience to environmental changes, also by means of structural/functional analysis of genes and proteins, in the framework of impacts on adaptations and evolution.

Interest on polar marine organisms: (i) they are amongst the most vulnerable species to climate change; (ii) micro/macroorganisms are a valuable source of natural products that can function as start structures of new molecules for drug discovery. New projects are aimed at taking advantage of biodiversity of marine organisms for the development of novel bioactive compounds.

research InterestS

Molecular adaptations in models of prokaryotes and eukaryotes from extreme environments; vulnerability to climate change. Impacts on ecosystems of fast climate change occurring in the polar regions, and pressures arising from global change, invasive species, human impacts, and extreme events. Production of changes in individuals, populations and communities by synergistic stresses. Multidisciplinary studies of current biological processes in polar ecosystems, to define tolerance limits/thresholds and thereby determine resistance and resilience to environmental changes, also by means of structural/functional analysis of genes and proteins, in the framework of impacts on adaptations and evolution.

Interest on polar marine organisms: (i) they are amongst the most vulnerable species to climate change; (ii) micro/macroorganisms are a valuable source of natural products that can function as start structures of new molecules for drug discovery. New projects are aimed at taking advantage of biodiversity of marine organisms for the development of novel bioactive compounds.
