Craig H. Neilsen Foundation Funding
We are so excited and honored to receive funding from the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation for spinal cord injury research. The funded projects will focus on recording phrenic afferent activity after spinal injury and using Adeno-associated viral approaches to manipulate afferent activity to improve breathing after injury.

We are looking for motivated individual to fill a full-time lab technician position in the Streeter Lab. This individual will work as part of a team exploring mechanisms of plasticity and an exciting area of respiratory neural control: afferent mediated changes in respiratory motor output. More details on this position can be found here:

New manuscript available online
Our report describing a novel form of respiratory plasticity induced by activation of phrenic afferents during diaphragm pacing is now available online. A big congrats to my team!
The fundamental hypothesis guiding our work is that respiratory afferents induce spinal plasticity and facilitate remodeling within the respiratory neural network. Our laboratory uses a multi-disciplinary approach including behavioral studies, neurophysiological preparations, and molecular techniques to investigate the functional significance and therapeutic potential of respiratory afferent activation, with the ultimate goal of identifying novel rehabilitative strategies to improve cardiorespiratory control following cervical spinal cord injury
