Keywords: Polyamines Cardiac hypertrophy Antitumor compounds Regulation of cell growth Biochemical responses to exercise

The research interests fall into three main themes:

1 – Metabolism and biological roles of polyamines

2 – Response to cellular stress. Mechanisms activated by metabolic stress, including physical exercise.

3 – Regulation of cell growth and cell death. Molecular mechanisms leading to cancer cell death in response to anticancer molecules.
