Dr Gabriel Cucato

VC Senior Fellow

Department: Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation

I have been a principal investigator in studies evaluating how exercise/physical activity impact cardiovascular function in patients with chronic disease (especially in peripheral artery disease patients). I have also experience leading and conducting multidisciplinary lifestyle intervention, clinical trials and epidemiological trials. Additional areas of interest include psychological outcomes (perceived exertion of exercise), metabolic syndrome, cancer, physical fitness, cerebral function and preoperative exercise therapy.
