Learn about the research activities carried out Lafibe and lines of research worked.
Dedicated to study the response to physical exercise and the action of antioxidants on oxidative stress markers and other biochemical variables involved in the physiopathology of diseases, especially cardiorespiratory and neurodegenerative conditions.
Chief researcher: Prof. Ricardo A. Pinho, PhD.
Addresses the response caused by physical exercise and nutrients with anti-inflammatory action on the insulin action molecular pathway in different tissues in dysfunctions like obesity, diabetes and cardiac diseases.
Chief researcher: Prof. Claudio T. Souza, PhD.
This line investigates ventilation responses to physical exercise in humans and in animal cardiac failure models accompanied by inspiratory muscle weakness, dynamic response to physical exercise in chronic diseases, and the respective repercussion in the redistribution of blood flow and weaning off mechanical ventilation, with emphasis on the indication of physical exercise and the conduction of physical evaluation.
Chief researcher: Prof. Gaspar R. Chiappa, PhD.
