about the UF breathe center The only center of its kind in the us
Although many centers in the United States are devoted to pulmonary function, no other is focused on respiratory neuromuscular function.
Mission: To create a world-renowned program devoted to understanding physiological challenges to respiratory motor control in health and disease and to translate our knowledge into strategies of respiratory rehabilitation in devastating clinical disorders that compromise breathing. Our goal is to unite basic and clinician scientists at UF committed to understanding the biology and pathophysiology of breathing and airway defense. The center fosters links between the University of Florida and private/public organizations that support biomedical research.
Our faculty collaborate with researchers in several centers across campus and beyond to meet our mission.
From Social & Science to the Control of Breathing & Airway Defense International Online Seminar Series, the UF BREATHE Center sponsors and co-sponsors a variety of events aimed at connecting respiratory researchers of all levels.
The BREATHE Training Program is designed to allow young scientists to engage in meaningful translational research partnerships and to develop successful careers in respiratory research.
From guest lectures to our CoBAD seminar series, we are building a video library that illustrates the breadth and depth of breathing research and therapeutics.
