CoBAD Online Seminars


CoBAD Logo

The UF Breathing Research and Therapeutics (BREATHE) Center is proud to sponsor the Control of Breathing and Airway Defense (CoBAD) International Online Seminar Series. Inaugurated in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic in Spring 2020, this series invites speakers to cover key elements of CoB and airway defense (e.g., rhythm generation, chemoreception, neuromodulation, plasticity, opioid depression, inflammation, sleep apnea, dysphagia, and breathing with neuromcould uscular disease). Our Programming Committee selects a variety of speakers to represent the breadth and depth of our field. Our Spring/Summer 2022 series will be held twice monthly on Fridays at 3 pm ET via Zoom from February 11 until June 17.
