The Brain & Breathing Science Laboratory explores the neural and physiological mechanisms regulating breathing, pain, and arousal. Using a combination of neuroscience, physiological, and genetics tools, we investigate the neural circuits, receptors, and second messengers mediating physiological and behavioural functions.
Our core philosophy is simple! Do whatever is needed to improve health, decrease morbidity and mortality associated with respiratory disorders and drug overdose.
We have a constantly evolving team at our lab. Get to know who they are.
Congratulations to Natalka Parzei! First Place at the Elevator Pitch Competition at St. Michael’s Hospital!
Better late than never to congratulate Jean-Philippe for his CIHR Postdoctoral Fellowship Award…Keep the excellent work!
Andreea Furdui receives an Ontario Graduate Scholarship to perform her IMS Master degree on the neural mechanisms of opioid-induced respiratory depression. Congrats!
