Lipids in Human Pathology is an interdisciplinary group of chemists, biochemists, biologists, medical doctors and dietitians committed to understand the role of membrane lipids in cell pathophysiology. With this, our overall aim is to apply this knowledge to the development of new tools for early diagnosis and treatment monitoring for conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease and colorectal cancer.


We are currently focused on three main research areas:


1) Role of membrane lipids, particularly phospholipids, in the tumorigenic process in colorectal cancer and in chronic diseases as inflammatory bowel disease.

2) Obtain the necessary lipidomic data for the development of new diagnostic and treatment tools.

3) Changes in the lipidome occurring in  immune cells during immune response
