I am a PhD student in Eric Herlenius' Group.
The brainstem respiratory circuits that drive the urge to breath continue to develop postnataly which makes the breathing behavior in newborn fragile and highly vulnerable to stressors.
My research focuses on determining the mechanism of breathing, the cellular types and subtypes in the preBötC and pFRG that are sensitive to inflammatory signaling and how they are affected in the context of perinatal development.
