Birthplace: Brazil

Since my undergraduate training at the medical school, I started to research the cardiovascular system in the Dr Vassallo Lab (UFES-Brazil). My interest in vascular function and dysfunction on cardiovascular diseases took me to develop my graduate training in the laboratory of Dr Vassallo and Dr Jesus Marín and Mercedes Salaices (UAM-Spain) studying the role of ouabain on the vascular reactivity adjustments observed in hypertension. I have been PI of my own laboratory since 2002, on the Physiology and Biophysics Department, Biomedical Science Institute at the University of Sao Paulo Brazil. During all this time, graduate and undergraduate students have been participating to the Lab. My group have won fellowships, travel and presentation awards, and we consistently received financial support to develop our research (FAPESP, CNPq). The main aim of the Vascular Physiology Lab is to understand the molecular pathways involved on functional and structural adjustments in conductance and resistance vessels of cardiovascular diseases (hypertension and heart failure), and as pharmacological and non-pharmacological (exercise training, microbiota and cross-fostering) maneuvers can restore or prevent these alterations.
