The main area of interest is the role of lipid and lipid peroxides in the induction of inflammatory processes; in this context particular attention is devoted to the study of sebaceous and epidermal lipids and the possible correlation between qualitative and quantitative changes of sebum and stratum corneum composition and the onset of skin diseases. Another area of interest is the study of lipid arrangement in cellular membranes and the role that alterations in phospholipid composition play in signal transduction concerning skin diseases.
