Dr. Annette de Kloet, Ph.D.

Dr. Annette de Kloet investigates neural circuits that regulate energy balance and cardiovascular function.

Dr. Annette de Kloet


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.
