Rodrigo Fernandez Gonzalo
PhD in Exercise Physiology
My research focuses on understanding how skeletal muscle mass and function are regulated in different conditions and situations. The studies I perform use a wide array of methods to analyze functional, metabolic, morphological, molecular and neural adaptations to acute and chronic exercise, and short- or long-term muscle disuse (e.g. unloading), aging, disease (e.g. cerebral palsy), and athletic performance.
