Biography

Pedro Dal Lago is associate professor tenure of the Physical Therapy department at Universidade Federal de Ciências da Saúde de Porto Alegre (2002) and is a CNPq Productivity Researcher (1D). He holds an academic degree in Physical Therapy from the Universidade Federal de Santa Maria (1992), a Sc.D. in Biological Sciences (Physiology) from the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (2001). He is a member of the advisory committee on health sciences of FAPERGS, consultant of CAPES, CNPq, FAPESP, INEP/MEC (all in Brazil) and FWO (Belgium).

Reasearch Interest

With a research interest in cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, his projects involve applied clinical research, bench and animal experimentation, translational research with a focus on pathophysiology and non-pharmacological resources applied to cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. He also has experience in cardiovascular physiology, respiratory physiology, working mainly in the following subjects: cardiopulmonary rehabilitation, respiratory physiotherapy, animal models of cardiovascular diseases, heart failure, physical exercise and inspiratory muscle training.
