Prof. Carlos E Irarrazabal is a Professor in the Center for Biomedical Research at University of Los Andes, Chile. He received his Ph.D in Biomedical Sciences, University of chile (2001). His research group is interested into understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms activated during different insults affecting the Renal and Cardiovascular systems. There is a wide range of agents with potential capability to damage these systems and have focused to research the ischemic condition, with emphasison understanding the role of hypoxia. They are interested to develop Translational Medicine and innovation research. This perspective has got our interest to explore the role of extracellular microvesicles generated from cells as a source of molecular target for diagnosis and therapy.

Dr. Andrea Sgoifo is an Associate Professor of Physiology in Department of Neuroscience at the University of Parma, Italy. He received his MS in Biological Sciences University of Parma, Italy, (1987), Ph.D in Cardiovascular Pathophysiology University of Milano, (1994). Dr. Sgoifo Research activity focuses on the biological substrates of depression/anxiety and autonomic/cardiovascular dysfunction comorbidity. This topic is approached via preclinical research on animal models of depression (based on adverse social conditions and anxiety (based on lines selectively bred). Proendocannabinoid pharmacological treatment (FAAH inhibition) is tested to verify its pevention/reversal potential over behavioral and physiological symptoms of anxiety/depression as well as over autonomic/cardiovascular dysfunction. Part of the research activity is also devoted to the evaluation of a number of chronic stress parameters in various human populations.
