Background and activities
Gustavo Jose Justo da Silva, Ph.D., is a postdoctoral associate in the Cardiac Exercise Research Group (CERG) at ISB/NTNU. His research focuses on the molecular and cellular pathways involved in the cardiovascular effects of exercise training . He received his PhD in 2003 from the University of Sao Paulo (USP) in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and, from 2009 to 2011, he worked for Prof Leon de Windt at the Department of Cardiology in the University of Maastricht, The Netherlands. More recently (in 2011), he joined the CERG group as a post-doc research fellow.
