The research activity of Dr. Paola Russo is focused on the interaction between genetic and nutritional factors in the pathogenesis of chronic diseases. The research area primarily involves the investigation of genetic and dietary factors, using epidemiology approaches, in the cause and prevention of cardiovascular disease, renal disease, and other important conditions. She is now evaluating genetic and biological markers of the interaction of nutritional factors with determinants of disease.
She co-ordinates the activity of the risk polymorphism genetic lab (SNPs lab), where genetic variants associated with arterial hypertension, altered renal sodium handling and obesity were identified. More recently, the activity of the SNPs Lab, set up at ISA-CNR by Dr. Paola Russo in 2000, is focused on the evaluation of gene-environment interaction in multi-factorial diseases, in particular cardiovascular diseases, metabolic disorders, childhood and adult obesity, in large samples of children and adult European and multi-ethnic populations, through the characterization and the analysis of risk polymorfisms (SNPs).
