Welcome to the Streeter Lab at Marquette University
We live, sleep, and breathe respiratory neural control research.
We are honored that our work on spinal cord injury was featured in the College of Health Sciences magazine. Check it out!

APTA Combined Sections Meeting
Dr. Taylor Holmes is off to represent our lab and showcase his work on developing a model for chronic diaphragm pacing at the APTA Combined Sections Meeting in Boston.
American Physiological Summit
Congrats to my students Dr. Taylor Holmes and Kaylyn Schwichtenberg for each having an accepted abstract to the APS meeting. We are looking forward to scientific discussions and social events in Long Beach!
Dr. Taylor Holmes has submitted his first lead author manuscript exploring the impact of sex after spinal cord injury. Congrats Taylor!

We are looking for motivated individuals to fill a full-time lab technician position and have an open position for a graduate student. These individuals 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 these positions can be found here:
We have assembled an outstanding group of scientists who are devoted to advancing our knowledge of respiratory neural control. We are always looking for motivated interested in respiratory research individuals to join our team, contact us below.
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
Marquette University is located in historic downtown Milwaukee, WI
