Functional Cardiovascular Engineering Laboratory

About Us

Our research applies a multiscale approach, where the initial stage is set by molecular biochemical interactions that produce cellular effects, which generate tissue changes. Their balance defines systemic regulation and new homeostatic set points. Fundamentally, our work is gas-driven living cellular behavior reprogramming, and our goal is to discover and analyze the underlying fundamental regulatory processes. The potential for translation of our research is highly significant, since most of the experimental studies are performed in whole mammalian organisms, preserving all the metabolic and regulatory mechanisms existing in physiological and pathophysiological conditions.
