Research AssociateJacqui

Jacqueline is from the University of São Paulo Brazil and has 10 years of experience handing laboratory rodents. Her expertize is focused on models of metabolic and cardiovascular disease associate with exercise training. She has presented several abstracts at several scientific meetings and has numerous published articles and conference presentations in the United States and Brazil. Ms. Machi is knowledgeable and dedicated to her work with live animals; as a Research Associate, she brings her experience in the cardiovascular area to study autonomic treatment strategies for Gulf War Illness (GWI). Experience with surgical and tehcnical laboratory procedures in animal studies, Ms. Machi is trained on invasive and non-invasive techniques, such as catheterization, drug infusion, metabolic test sampling, echocardiography, vascular reactivity in mesenteric, direct recording of blood pressure and heart rate, metabolic assessments, oxidative stress, inflammatory cytokines.

RodrigoResearch Assistant

Rodrigo is a Research Scholar and Ph.D. student in the Cardiology Program at the University of São Paulo (InCor), Brazil. He has 12 years of experience handing laboratory rodents and 15 years of experience in human clinical studies. His expertize is focused on collecting, registering and the analysis of physical and biological signals on models of metabolic and cardiovascular diseases. He has been trained in the use of invasive and non-invasive techniques, such as cannulation, drug infusion, sinoaortic denervation, nerve isolation surgery, nerve signal collection and myocardial infarction model surgery in rats. Mr. Schmidt has 15 years of experience in invasive and transcutaneous electrical stimulation as well as acoustic and electromagnetic fields interaction with biological materials.
