Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas (ICB)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Dr. Steiner did his undergraduate and graduate training at the University of Sao Paulo (Brazil), having obtained his PharmD in 1999 and his PhD in Physiology in 2002. He did his postdoctoral training at Joseph?s Hospital & Medical Center (Phoenix, AZ, USA) from 2002 to 2007. His first faculty appointment was as an Assistant Professor at the Albany College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences (Albany, NY, USA), where he stayed until 2012. Since then, Dr. Steiner has been a faculty member in Immunology at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences of the University of Sao Paulo, where he currently occupies an Associate Professor position. The Steiner laboratory studies the multilateral interactions among immune system and physiological systems in life-threatening infections (sepsis) and systemic inflammation. The overall goal is to identify the mechanisms by which these systems cooperate or compete with each other under different contexts. Many, but certainly not all, of the cooperative mechanisms rely on the central nervous system as an integrator of immune, physiological and environmental clues. Currently, Dr. Steiner?s research projects fall in one of three lines of investigation: (i) Tissue-specific functions of resident macrophages, their crosstalk, and their neuroendocrine modulation; (ii) Cost-benefit relationship of fever versus hypothermia in bacterial sepsis and fungal infections; (iii) Hemodynamics of septic shock.
