Dear colleagues,

Our laboratory at the University of the State of Rio de Janeiro accepts Master and Ph.D. students in projects related to metabolism, obesity, and associated problems. We have expertise in cellular and molecular biology, and quantitative methods in morphology (morphometry, allometry, and stereology — see the revisions below on this subject):
