Emilia Monteiro, Principal Investigator of the Translational Pharmacology Lab, describes to 90 Segundos de Ciência the research interest of the lab: hypertension associated with sleep apnea.

During the interview, Emilia Monteiro explains how the team identified a therapeutic target capable of reversing hypertension associated with sleep apnea using an animal model.
In order to move forward, Emilia Monteiro's Lab developed a second project aiming to identify if the key molecular pathway identified in the animal model is also altered in human patients with hypertension caused by sleep apnea.
