Dr. Ray was invited by the Mind Brain and Behavior Collaborative and the Center for Pediatric Neuroscience Seminar Series at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital to present his research. The title of Dr. Ray’s talk was “Genetic Mapping of Central Noradrenergic Neurons Reveals Distinct Subpopulations Involved in Respiratory Homeostasis with Implications for SIDS and Rett Syndrome”.
Dr. Russell Ray has been selected to serve on the Respiratory Integrative Biology and Translational Research Study Section at NIH! This is a unique opportunity to contribute to the national biomedical research effort and a testament to his achievements in his field.
The lab successfully renewed their first R01 (on the first submission!) and was recently awarded a $3 Million NIH Grant to continue their study of the central noradrenergic system in breathing and its potential roles in SIDS and Rett Syndrome for another five years. The first grant has a been a resounding success by establishing a foundational map of central noradrenergic circuit organization in breathing control, identifying noradrenergic neural correlates as potential therapeutic targets in Rett Syndrome, and establishing a novel role of…
Dr. Russell Ray received the American Physiological Society’s Respiratory Section New Investigator Award, a national award and the only one in his field!
