    Research interests: As crucial constituents of the biological membranes, lipids have crucial roles the traffic across the plasma membrane and in the starting of intracellular signaling triggered by extracellular modulators. In consequence, lipids have been evolutionally selected targets for pathogens to modulate host cell processes in order to allow their replication and survival. Specialized microdomains in the biological membranes, called lipid rafts, have been clearly involved in triggering signaling from the plasmatic membrane as well as in membrane trafficking, including entry of pathogens or pathogenic proteins into target cells. Thus, given the essential role of rafts in membrane dynamics, we have focused on the involvement of rafts in mental illnesses, such as Schizophrenia.
