Padilla-Parra Lab

We employ advanced single molecule imaging approaches to understand enveloped virus fusion mechanics. We use a highly interdisciplinary approach that combines, virology, molecular biology, advanced biophysics live cells imaging and single molecule spectroscopy to define virus fusion molecular machines. In particular we investigate a number of enveloped viruses during the first steps of infection (virus entry and fusion) that comprise Human Immunodeficiency Virus 1 (HIV-1), Ebola (EBOV) and SARS Corona viruses (SARS CoV 2).

Parents & Communities Together (PACT)

PACT (Parents and Communities Together) is an early intervention project that provides support and information for pregnant mothers and their infants.

Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases

Our brains change as we age, increasing the risk of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases. Neurodegenerative disorders are conditions that cause the loss or damage of brain cells and circuits with devastating results. We investigate all aspects of these diseases – from the underlying genetic causes through to how we treat patients in the clinic.

Stress, Psychiatry and Immunology Lab & Perinatal Psychiatry

In the Stress, Psychiatry and Immunology laboratory (SPI-Lab) Research Group, which includes the Perinatal Psychiatry team,we aim to understand how stress hormones and inflammatory responses regulate behaviour and participate to the therapeuticaction of psychotropic drugs.
