Our laboratory focuses on the control of breathing and pulmonary mechanics in murine models of several genetic diseases.  We are currently focuased on ALS mouse models and the Pompe disease mouse model.  We examine the impact of gene therapy and neuromodulation on respiratory insufficiency that results from neuromuscular weakness. As a clinician scientist, my goal is to bring therapy from the bench to the bedside and enhance our research at the bench through observations at the bedside.
