Bruno Conti

Professor Emeritus at Scripps Research Institute

Bruno Conti, Ph.D. is Professor, Molecular and Integrative Neurosciences Department (MIND), The Scripps Research Institute.

Bruno is interested in the biological role of cytokines in the central nervous system and in the role of central thermoregulation in energy homeostasis and aging.

In particular, he is investigating the biology of interleukin 18 (IL-18) and of interleukin 13 (IL-13) in the central nervous system (CNS). These cytokines can participate in local inflammatory processes affecting neuronal survival and neurodegenerative diseases. In addition, since the IL-18, as well as the IL-13 receptors, is expressed in neurons, these interleukins can directly influence central functions and behavior.
