Line overview

Main interests:
Our main interest is focused on elucidate the mechanisms leading to neurodegeneration during aging, basically those related to the inflammatory response.
The essential objective of our work is to develop therapeutic strategies that recover age-affected neuronal populations.
The possibility of employing neurotrophic factors that prevent neurodegeneration, increase neuron recovery and regulate inflammatory response is clinically relevant.

Chronic inflammation plays a key role in most common neurodegenerative diseases.
A possible therapeutic target for the treatment of the disease can be blocking the source of that inflammation.
Microglia and astrocytes are the main effector cells that contribute to brain inflammation.


  • To investigate the possible restoring, neuroprotective, and/or anti-inflammatory effects of IGF-I in aging rodents and experimental models of neurodegenerative diseases.
  • To determine if aging and sexual differences can affect their neuroprotective action.
  • To elucidate the cellular and molecular mechanisms of the anti-inflammatory activity of IGF-I in the brain.
  • To study the role of glial cells as mediators of IGF-I effects.
  • To characterize the changes in the lipid composition associated to age and sex.

Lines of work

1-Cell reprogramming and gene therapy for the treatment of motor dopaminergic neurodegeneration.

Principal Investigator: Eugenia Falomir-Lockhart

The ultimate objective of the present project is to study comprehensively the motor-nervous system applying strategies of gene therapy and regenerative medicine in the dopaminergic system (nigro-striatal) in order to improve the age-related deficiencies in the motor pathways of the encephalic dopaminergic system.

2-Hypothalamus as aging regulating center - Anti-inflammatory gene therapy.

Principal Investigator: Franco Dolcetti

The central hypothesis of the present plan is that the transfer of neuroprotective genes constitutes an effective strategy to diminish the inflammatory response in the aging, constituting a possible treatment of diverse age-related neurodegenerative processes. In particular we consider that intrahypothalamic gene therapy for insulin-like growth factor type I (IGF-I) would module the immune response with the subsequent delay in the onset of aging-associated damages and/or their improvement once they have occurred.

Aging is the result of multiple physiological changes, and the hypothalamus can be an underlying mediator representing a target of controlling strategies to counteract aging and aging-related diseases.
