overview

My research focuses on the metabolic alterations underlying involuntary weight loss and muscle wasting in chronic inflammatory diseases, involving the use of stable isotope methodologies, and the effects of dietary modulation and exercise intervention to restore metabolism and physical performance in these patients.
