We study several aspects of protein phosphorylation, a process regulated by protein kinases and phosphatases, frequently altered in cancer and other diseases. The research activities focus on the biochemical and cellular characterization of different kinases and phosphatases, the definition of their structure/function relationship, and the analysis of their signalling pathways in normal and pathological cells. Selective protein kinase inhibitors are developed as potential therapeutic drugs.
