Speaker: Professor Paulo Mathias, State University of Maringa, Brazil

Professor Paulo Mathias is head of the Laboratory of Secretion Cell Biology.
Following a PhD in Sciences (Human Physiology) at University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and postdoctoral work at NIH, USA; University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, USA and Hadassah Medical Center, Israel, Prof Mathias returned to Brazil.

In 2012 he was visiting Professor at Institut Polytechnique LaSalle-Beauvais, LaSalle, and Lille University of Science and Technology, in France.
For the past six years he has been one of the heads of International Symposium on Metabolic Programming and Stress in Brazil and in 2016 was elected President of Ibero-American DOHaD - Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (until 2020).

Paulo’s research has focussed on the impact of diet restriction during pregnancy on metabolic outcomes and insulin secretion in rodents, and the use of a range of interventions as ‘reprogramming tools’. More recently he started examining the impact of environmental factors on metabolic programming.

All welcome. Drinks and snacks from 3:30pm, seminar starts, 4pm.
