Intermittent Hypoxia Workshop & Retreat

Intermittent Hypoxia Workshop, February 2020

Since 2016, the UF BREATHE Center has hosted researchers from across the world at our biannual Intermittent Hypoxia Workshops & Retreats. These events feature laboratories interested in intermittent hypoxia, its physiological impact, and its therapeutic potential. Topics range from basic science (cellular/network mechanisms) and translational studies in animal models or humans through the potential for clinical utilization. Although the emphasis is on plasticity and the therapeutic potential of low-dose intermittent hypoxia, there is also consideration of the transition to pathogenesis once intermittent hypoxia becomes too severe.
