Prof. Fadini’s teaching activity is directed to students of the M.D. course in Medicine and Surgery and of the Specialty course in Endocrinology and Metabolism. Prof. Fadini research activities are devoted to the study of chronic vascular diabetic complications, stem cells in diabetes, angiogenesis, atherosclerosis, vascular calcification, vascular regeneration, wound healing, metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance, oxidative stress, acute diabetic complications, longevity gene pathways in metabolic diseases. Thanks to a series of clinical translational studies on endothelial progenitor cells, Prof. Fadini research activity has contributed to the understanding of how diabetes induces vascular damage and compromised endothelial repair. As an evolution of this field of study, Prof. Fadini has moved to consider the bone marrow as a target of diabetic complications, which regulates vascular stem cells and regeneration.
