Dr. Abolfazl Akbari | Physiology Award | Best Researcher Award

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ«Profile Summary

As a dedicated physiologist currently serving as a research assistant at the University of Mazandaran in Babolsar, Iran, I am deeply committed to unraveling the fundamental mechanisms underlying physiological processes. My research primarily focuses on understanding the intricate regulation of inhibitory and excitatory neural pathways controlling heart rate and blood pressure within the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus and medulla. Additionally, I am passionate about investigating basic mechanisms such as inflammation, oxidative stress, and autophagy in metabolic disorders such as diabetes and cancer. My goal is to develop innovative approaches, including nanomaterials and herbal remedies, for the treatment of various disorders including reproductive, neurodegenerative, and metabolic diseases.
