Maria is a joint NHMRC and National Heart Foundation Early Career Fellow at La Trobe University. Since completing her PhD (2017) in vascular physiology, her research has focused on elucidating mechanisms that drive cardiac and renal complications in cardiometabolic disease. Maria specialises in using rodent models of cardiovascular disease to test the impact of pharmacological interventions and genetic modifications on disease parameters. In her short career to date, she has produced 22 publications (with over 450 citations), and secured over $635,000 in competitive funding. She is also passionate about training the next generation of scientists to build on Australia’s capacity in biomedical research and has over 7 years’ experience training both undergraduate and HDR students in physiology.
