Dr. Annette de Kloet investigates neural circuits that regulate energy balance and cardiovascular function.
Dr. de Kloet’s research program is broadly focused on elucidating mechanisms underlying obesity and co-morbid conditions such as hypertension and diabetes. A particular emphasis is placed on the interactions among the neural circuits that regulate energy balance with those that control blood pressure, and also on the impact that the renin-angiotensin system has on these circuits.
