- Research Grants
Full-time Professor at the Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP-Diadema), graduated in Biological Sciences from São Paulo State University (Unesp) and obtained his PhD degree in Sciences (Human Physiology) by the Institute of Biomedical Sciences, University of São Paulo (ICB-USP). Camilo worked as post-doctorate researcher at ICB-USP and Université Laval in Canada. Camilo has expertise in neuroendocrine regulation and molecular mechanisms of glucocorticoids action in pancreatic islets. Participates as researcher with Canadian investigators in researches focused on bioactive compounds, mainly polyphenol, and its role on insulin secretion, insulin action in peripheral tissues and inflammatory processes in metabolic diseases. Coordinates the Laboratory of Experimentation and Physiology Education (LExEPh), a research group focused on developing and investigating innovative and technological methods in Physiology Education. Currently, his lab group develops research projects in the domain of the sciences of learning and SoTL in STEM aiming the pedagogical use of smartphones and other mobile devices for teaching, as well as education for obesity and comorbidities prevention.

Reduced glucose uptake in muscle cell triggered by insulin signalling impairment due to insulin receptor nitrosylation is a mechanism that contributes to the development of metabolic syndrome. Phenolic compounds from fruits and vegetables are likely to prevent metabolic syndrome through activation of AMPK, a protein that induces insulin-independent glucose uptake and inhibits inducible ...
