Nutrition and diabetes
My research interests include exploration of pathologies during the development of diabetes and dietary treatment methods. I am particularly interested in investigating functional changes in pancreatic, muscular and cerebral microvasculature during the development of diabetes, as well as the search for food-derived bioactive molecules that preserve or improve microvascular function in diabetic patients.
