We believe in essential core values in the Brain & Breathing Science lab. Although science is our primary goal, there are values that are essential to sustain scientific quality and honesty. We thrive to apply these values to every aspect of our work, so research can be flawless.
Good science can only be performed by talented peoples and would not be possible without staff and trainees. We believe in peoples that can elevate research and become their bests.
Identification of new therapeutics requires high-throughput screening of genes and chemical library. We use the phenotypic-based drug and gene screening in zebrafish and cell-based assays to identify new drug compounds for the treatment of neurological and respiratory disorders.
To better understand the pathophysiology underlying breathing disorders, we perform clinical studies in patient populations. Using polysomnography and brain imaging, we look at the electrocortical signatures associated with breathing disorders such as opioid-induced respiratory depression.
