CoBAD International Online Seminars


The UF Breathing Research and Therapeutics (BREATHE) Center is proud to sponsor the Control of Breathing and Airway Defense (CoBAD) International Online Seminar Series. This 10-week seminar series will be held every Friday (June 19 to August 28*) from 3:00 to 4:30 pm ET via Zoom and will cover key elements of CoB and airway defense (e.g., rhythm generation, chemoreception, neuromodulation, plasticity, opioid depression, inflammation, sleep apnea, dysphagia, and breathing with neuromuscular disease). The series will culminate with a final “Town Hall” in September. This page will be updated regularly with the CoBAD schedule, links to seminar flyers, video links, and other information.
