Ciriolo’s main research concerns oxygen free radicals (ROS) and nitrogen free radicals (RNS) and redox signaling and their involvement in the pathophysiology of inflammatory diseases, metabolic disorders, and neurological defects. In this context, various signaling mechanisms such as impaired mitochondria function, cell cycle arrest, DNA damage response, inflammation, protein regulation, and lipid peroxidation along with various redox signaling pathways such as apoptosis and autophagy have been characterized. Author of more than 220 papers published in “peer-reviewed” scientific journals; 20 book chapters and 120 abstracts at National and International Congresses.
