Designation: Assistant Professor at University of Calabria, Italy.
Department: Biology, Ecology and Earth Sciences
University: University of Vancouver
Research Interests: 1. Oxidative stress, aging and chronic kidney disease (CKD): traditional and/or specific risk factors for chronic renal failure (oxidative stress, inflammation, endothelial damage) in both patients (CKD or end stage renal disease) and animal model (rat). In collaboration with "Kidney and Transplantation" Research Centre, Annunziata Hospital. 2. Oxidative stress as a new cardiovascular risk factor: epidemiological studies and animal models (spontaneously hypertensive rats and obese rats). 3. Morphofunctional cardiovascular adaptations to extreme environments: physiological relevance of nitric oxide signalling in the control of cardiac performance in both mammalian (rat) and non-mammalian (Antarctic and temperate teleost) experimental models. Italian National Research Program in Antarctica.
