The lab recently submitted an RO1 grant with the aim of utilizing a recently developed automated closed loop neonate respiratory assessment platform to screen mouse mutants from the BCM KOMP effort. KOMP, or the Knockout Mouse Project is an international effort to mutate and broadly phenotype every gene in the mouse genome. The grant will leverage an array of our newly developed platforms to screen KOMP mutants for phenotypes in protective neonate respiratory reflexes that may be disrupted in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). We hope the screen will offer novel insights into potential mechanistic underpinnings of SIDS, a devastating syndrome that takes the lives of nearly  3,700 infants each year.
