The lab is devoted to improving basic understandings of mechanisms that regulate intercellular communication between autonomic neurons and the cardiomyocytes. In particular, the role of sympathetic innervation is explored in the context of the physiology of cardiac function and trophism, and to understand its role in cardiovascular pathology. To this aim, methods used in the research span from molecular biology to cellular imaging to electrophysiology in vitro and in vivo.
