Demyelinating diseases

Study of the implications of the new bioenergetic vision of respiring myelin sheath in the development of retinopathies, in animal models.

Retinopathies

Study of the implications of the new bioenergetic vision of respiring rod outer segments in the development of retinopathies, in animal models.

Effect of electromagnetic fields on biological systems

study of the effects of electromagnetic fields at low frequency (ELF-EFM) on membrane anchored enzymes in in vitro (enzyme linked membrane) and in vivo (ossification, development of sea urchin eggs). biosystems.

Electrostretching of proteins
