About Me

Research Interests

My laboratory is studying, in large animal models, the role of factors released by heart and skeletal muscle and named, respectively, “cardiokines” and “myokines”,  as modulators of cardiac function and metabolism under physiological and pathological conditions. A second line of experimental research is on new pharmacological and biological therapies for the treatment of heart failure and atrial fibrillation.
