Demetrio Raldúa Pérez
Research group: Environmental Toxicology
Dr. Demetrio Raldúa (h-index=35, 97 publications, 3,344 citations) is specialized in several aspects of vertebrate physiology and toxicology. His current research interest is the understanding of the molecular bases of the neurotoxic effects of some environmental pollutants and drugs. By using zebrafish as vertebrate model, he tries to identify the AOPs of neurotoxicants, by linking molecular pathways to adverse effects at neurobehavioral level. Currently, Dr. Raldúa is coordinating the NATO SPS funded project (SPS.MYP G5852), on the therapeutic potential of several thioredoxin-mimetic peptides to protect against neurotoxic industrial chemicals (NeuroTICs).
