Crowded in the Graduate Post - Masters in Physiotherapy from UNIMEP / Piracicaba Program , the research group called Metabolism, has as a guiding ordnance investigate changes in skeletal muscle as a result of processes that impair the contractile and the leader of this group dynamic, I work performed targeted metabolic assessment of muscles subjected to disuse. In 2006 I received regular FAPESP - Process 2006/60651-1 - Development and application of bracing for promotion of scoliosis in rats and developed an orthosis acrylic resin applied in studies of muscle immobilization and have evaluated the efficiency of techniques applied in Physiotherapy, a process that allowed the generation of dissertations and projects Scientific Initiation (publication SILVA, CA; GUIRRO, RRJ. DURIGAN , JLQ, Polacow, MLO Rat hindlimb joint immobilization with acrylic Resin Orthoses Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research , vol. 39th , p. 979-985 , 2006).The studies conducted so far have the opportunity to participate in the academic scientific initiation program preparing them for professional and / or academic life as well as the orientation of 16 dissertations , until this year. This line of research has given many students the opportunity to pursue their studies in different programs Postgraduate renowned at home .Recently, under regular project funding assistance from FAPESP ( 2011/50952-2 ) developed the project " Molecular Assessment of paraspinal muscle of rats induced with poly vinyl vest scoliosis ", an experimental model used in the induction of scoliosis in order . noninvasive ( Posted: SILVA , CA ; GUIRRO , RRJ ; ARRUDA , EJ ; DELFINO , GB Proposal of non-invasive experimental model to induce scoliosis in rats Brazilian Journal of Physical Therapy ( Print) , v. 16 , p 254 - . . . 260 , 2012. ) .Within the line of action , step by presenting a new proposal development project that accompanies the actions already taken , and supplements include the generation of experimental models for non-invasive study of muscle disuse , which let you enhance the analysis and understanding the pathways action of different protocols of physical therapy intervention .
