The investigations of the Cell and Developmental Neurobiology lab at the University of Trieste (Department of Life Sciences), founded in 2000, are focused on the atrophy of neurons present in neurological disorders including genetic diseases affecting neuronal development, neuropsychiatric disorders, and the major neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. In particular, we study the mechanisms of neuronal atrophy and the protective role of neurotrophic growth factors such as Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF).

The research group of Dr. A Magistrato is devoted to study the molecular mechanism of diseases' onset thanks to the use of computer simulations techniques (classical and ab initio molecular dynamics) as well as to design new drugs and repositioning of existing drugs via structure based drug design (virtual screening, docking).
