Grant number: 12/11875-5
Support Opportunities:Research Grants - Visiting Researcher Grant - International
Duration: August 28, 2012 - September 01, 2012
Field of knowledge:Biological Sciences - Physiology - Physiology of Organs and Systems
Principal Investigator:Luiz Carlos Carvalho Navegantes
Grantee:Luiz Carlos Carvalho Navegantes
Visiting researcher: Rüdiger Rudolf
Visiting researcher institution: Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany
Host Institution: Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto (FMRP). Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Ribeirão Preto , SP, Brazil
Associated research grant:08/06694-6 - Neural control of protein metabolism, AP.TEM


The main goal of the activities developed by Dr. Rudiger Rudolf will be the learning and application of new imaging techniques that can assist in the elucidation of signaling pathways by which the sympathetic nervous system controls the metabolism of proteins in skeletal muscle. Additionaly, the researcher's visit will contribute to the viability of the research project entitled "Functional Interaction between the Cholinergic and Adrenergic system in the Maintenance of Muscle Mass and Motor Plate". Considering also the great experience of visiting researcher with methods of image detection in vivo, its orientation will be valuable for planning future experiments aimed at using the microscope emission of two photons, equipment recently purchased by the Multi-User program of FAPESP.
