Research Interest: His research has concentrated on how physical, environmental, and emotional stress affects the hormonal responses of the endocrine system; in particular, focusing on dysfunctions and dis-regulations that develop in the system from stress exposure, that ultimately can compromise physiological responses and adaptations
Research Interest: Angiotensin II effects on renal
dopamine metabolism using in vitro models and different techniques like
pharmacological approaches, kinetic studies, enzymatic activities and
radiolabel markers. For my postdoctoral work, I expanded my research area and
studied the relationship between atrial natriuretic peptide and renal dopamine
system and its impact on sodium handling. For this purpose we employed an in
vivo model to evaluate this interaction on urinary parameters and used
molecular techniques to demonstrate the involvement of different tubular
