about the 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 to meet our mission.
From Social & Science to the the Control of Breathing International Online Seminar Series, BREATHE sponsors and co-sponsors a variety of events aimed at respiratory researchers at all levels.
Guided by our Diversity & Inclusion Subcommittee, the BREATHE Center is committed to promoting and supporting diversity within our center and the extended BREATHE community.
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.
