Adrienn Varga Wins 2020 Early Investigator Prize

Adrienn Varga

Dr. Adrienn Varga, BREATHE Training Program alumnus (mentor: Erica Levitt, PhD), received the Respiratory 2020 Early Investigator Prize from the Journal of Physiology for her publication “Differential impact of two critical respiratory centres in opioid-induced respiratory depression in awake mice.” This Editor’s Choice article found that opioids affect distributed key areas of the respiratory network in a dose-dependent manner and shows that countering the respiratory effects of high dose opioids via the KF may be an effective approach to combat overdose.
