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.

We have a constantly evolving team at our lab. Get to know who they are.
