Short description of ongoing research projects

1) Molecular and epigenetic characterization of a Parkinson-like syndrome induced by early-life permethrin treatment (a pyrethroid assumed through diet) in rats. 2) Genetics and epigenetic determinants of adipocytes differentiation and their involvement in obesity onset.
