Information about the researchers
|Cláudio Teodoro de Souza |
Cláudio Teodoro de Souza graduated in Physical Education, Universidade Estadual Paulista 'Julio de Mesquita Filho', in 1997. He obtained an MSc degree in Sciences of Motricity, Universidade Estadual Paulista 'Julio de Mesquita Filho', in 2001 and a PhD degree in Medical Clinical Practice, Elementary Sciences, Universidade Estadual de Campinas, in 2005. Dr. de Souza currently is an assistant researcher in Unicamp, as advisor to MSc and PhD students, and a professor with tenure in Universidade do Extremo Sul Catarinense, UNESC. Dr. de Souza has developed experience in physiology and biochemistry, with emphasis on endocrinal and cardiovascular physiology and physiology of physical exercise, mainly in the following fields of study: physical activity, health, chronic problems, physical exercise and insulin. Dr. de Souza has also gained expertise in molecular physiology applied to physical exercise, with emphasis on insulin pathway modulation in physical exercise after intense and/or continuous activity, and has worked consistently in the evaluation of food supplements in terms of prevention and rehabilitation of obesity treatment, diabetes and acute myocardial infarction.
|Gaspar Rogério da S. Chiappa |
Gaspar Rogério da Silva Chiappa graduated in Physiotherapy, Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, RS, Brazil, and finished an MSc course and a PhD course in Cardiology and Cardiovascular Studies in Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre, the teaching hospital of Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil, in 2003 and 2007, respectively. So far Dr. Chiappa has won prizes and/or has been honored six times. He is a member of the American Physiological Society and has obtained a post-doctoral degree in Clinical Physiopathology of Exercise, Universidade Federal de São Paulo, Brazil, under the advice of Prof. José Alberto Neder.
