Dr. Moralez’s primary research interests are in the assessment of autonomic cardiovascular responses to exercise, hypoxia and environmental stressors. Specifically, Dr. Moralez is interested in investigating the physiological mechanisms underlying the impaired autonomic control of sympathetic nerve activity to stressors in at-risk groups.

Research Interest

  • Autonomic and vascular responses to inflammation, oxidative stress and the activation of renin-angiotensin system.
  • Autonomic responses and maladaptations to physiological stressors in clinical and at-risk populations.
  • Cardiovascular responses and adaptations to exercise and environmental stressors.
  • Mechanisms contributing to the devolvement of the hyperadrenergic disease state.
