Adjunct Professor of Animal Physiology, Senior Researcher
My main interest fields are related to investigating cardiovascular functions, i.e. the role of alpha 2-adrenoceptors and hypoxia. The in vitro methods to test cardiac and vascular functions include the Langendorff perfused heart preparation and the Radnoti working heart model. In addition, I am interested in pharmacokinetics of alpha 2-adrenoceptor-related drugs, also receptor subtype-selective ones, including urodynamical studies in animal models.
