Detailed Activities

My research interests are focused on the study of metabolic, physiological and functional alterations during cardiovascular pathologies related to diffuse or localized ischemia (atherosclerosis, diabetic and obesity related cardiomyopathy, atrial fibrillation, ischemia during transplantation) both in animal models and humans. Magnetic resonance techniques with both spectroscopy (MRS, 31P, 23Na and 1H) and imaging (MRI) are combined to biochemical analyses and molecular biology methods Experimental models range from the isolated perfused rodent heart model to in vivo rodent models and to humans.
