Functional and Molecular Image of the Body Functional imaging is the state-of-the-art in diagnostic imaging. Magnetic Resonance made a giant leap in that direction through the employment of ultra-rapid acquisition techniques, which have enabled the measurement of variations in oxygen consumption levels arising from the BOLD effect and an estimation of the cellularity of tissues through the diffusion technique. PET has enabled Nuclear Medicine to measure the level of consumption of glucose in the tissue, by making use of ionizing radiation. It is largely employed in the investigation of tumors and metastasis, which have naturally increased the consumption of glucose due to a larger metabolic level. More recently, the Dynamic PET has enabled the assessment of the consumption of glucose over time and the measurement of the most active regions more precisely.

Cellular metabolism and membrane transport in renal and metabolic diseases (or disease states) This line of research is designed for the study of physiopathogenic mechanisms of several renal and metabolic diseases.
Mechanisms of memory consolidation This line of research will look at the role of the central histaminergic system in the basolateral amygdala and in the hippocampus in the consolidation of aversive and non-aversive memory. It will also look at the influence of the treatment relying on a histidine decarboxylase inhibitor.
Developmental neurology This line of research will deal with the ontogenesis and bioelectrogenesis of the Central Nervous System (clinical aspects and animal model), sleep studies and its disorders through the assessment of clinical and neurophysiological characteristics, thus laying the foundations for the understanding of sleep medicine in childhood, and the normal and abnormal development in early childhood.
Neurology/ stem cells This line of research is concerned with the assessment of the possibility of regeneration of central and peripheral neurological injuries resulting from neurodegenerative diseases, with somatic stem cells, as well as with the study of the structural and functional mechanisms of regeneration from injuries.
Cholinergic versus non-cholinergic components of memory The purpose of this line of research is to determine the components of memory deficits observable in transgenic rats incapable of expressing the fast transporter of hippocampal acetylcholine in different degrees. This can be applied to the treatment of the Alzheimer's disease with pro-collinergic drugs among others.
Behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry This line of research will look at the neurobiology of psychiatric diseases and behavioral alterations in major neurological diseases.
Cognitive brain imaging This line of research will look at the development of new techniques for the analysis of neuroimaging and studies of neural bases of superior cognitive processes (for instance, language comprehension and acquisition, executive functions, spatial reasoning).
Synaptic tagging of extinction The generation of weak LTP in a dendrite of pyramidal cells of the hippocampus can increase its potential by the LTP produced in another distant dendrite. This is called synaptic tagging and is due to the tagging of the first synapsis (tag) by a local protein which attracts another generated by the second synapsis (capture).
Neurotoxic activity of ureases and derived peptides This line of research will address the neurotoxic and pro-inflammatory activities of ureases of different organisms. It will also address the methodologies of study of neurotoxicity relying on the use of insects-models. As well as this, it will look at ureases as virulence factors for pathogenic microorganisms, especially bacteria Helicobacter pylori and Proteus mirabilis and Cryptococcu yeasts.
Neuroinflammation/Multiple Sclerosis/ neuromyelitis optica The inflammation resulting from neurological diseases may be primarily involved with the physiopathology of immunomediated diseases of the nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica, ADEM - acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, autoimmune encephalitis and some neurological complications resulting directly or indirectly from viral or bacterial infections (e.g. meningoencephalitis). In other diseases, the inflammation plays a major role, but less clear than it is in strokes and in degenerative diseases of the central nervous system. The deregulation in the immune system, be it either temporary or permanent, may lead to injuries in the brain, bone marrow and peripheral nerves that cause permanent neuronal damage with the risk of aftereffects and permanent incapacity. By relying on advanced methods in molecular biology associated with clinical and imaging assessment (magnetic resonance, nuclear medicine), we have conducted research that is intended to understand the intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms that lead to an increase of pro-inflammatory substances such as cytokines, chemokines, the production of autoantibodies, complement system activation, proliferation / maturation of autoreactive lymphocytes T and B, microglial activation and the alteration of the blood-brain barrier. Besides, we have conducted research for the identification of specific biomarkers for each disease which may assist in the establishment of better diagnosis/prognosis and in experimental animal models for the study of physiopathology and innovative therapeutic interventions.
Childhood epilepsy This line of research will address epilepsy in childhood.
Epilepsy This line of research will cover clinical and electroencephalographic, pharmacological, neuroimaging and surgical studies in the realm of epilepsy. The direct involvement of São Lucas Hospital with the diagnosis, clinical treatment and epilepsy surgery opens interesting perspectives of investigation, seeking diagnostic refinement, new treatment options and the correlations of epileptic syndromes with structural alterations of the brain.
Cell Terapy (Clinicals and experimental models, Regeneration and Tissue engineering, stem cells) This line of research will look at clinical and experimental models focused on the development of stem cells therapies, nervous regeneration and the use of stem cells in surgeries.
Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome This line is concerned with research in the area of obesity and metabolic syndrome with consequences in co-morbidities involved or related to the aforementioned pathologies.
Peripheral nerve (Clinical and experimental models, nerve regeneration, growth factors, stem cellls) Tissue Engineering (TE) is concerned with the study of new forms of tissue production to be used in reconstructive surgeries. It covers all methods and efforts made in order to create or induce the formation of tissues in a specific location.
Epidemiological, Clinicopathological, Radiological and Molecular aspects of malignant neoplasms. This area of concentration is intended to describe patients who suffer from malignant neoplasms in their different clinical stages, as well as to assess their clinical outcome by looking at the clinical, histopathological, radiological and molecular variables. Studies in this area may be accountable for addressing some issues that are still controversial among the scientific community.
Videolaparoscopic Surgery This area of concentration is intended to assess the advantages of the procedures conducted using less invasive techniques.
Technological Innovations in the Health Area Curently, we are seeing worldwide the fast development of technologies, proceedings and medicines focus at the most effective treatment of diseases and the restoration of health. This accelerated step with which medical knowledge progresses makes it necessary to create a new mentality in medical training, stimulating curiosity, the active search for knowledge and constant updating. The number and complexity of the scientific processes that lead to this evolution are also worthy of attention, both due to the need for training to understand them, as well as the work opportunity they represent for doctors in general.
