About David Fuller

My research laboratory in the UF McKnight Brain Institute is funded by multiple NIH grants and focuses on respiratory neuromuscular control and rehabilitation. Current projects are focused on 1) developing gene therapy approaches for respiratory neuromuscular disorders, 2) electrical and pharmacological stimulation of the spinal cord to promote respiratory motor recovery after spinal cord injury, and 3) understanding the spinal neural circuits that modulate respiratory motor output in health and disease.

I serve as Director of the UF Rehabilitation Science PhD Program http://rehabsci.phhp.ufl.edu/ and am also PI of an NIH T32 Training Grant https://pt.phhp.ufl.edu/train-with-us/t-32/. I also serve as the Associate Director of the Center for Respiratory Research and Rehabilitation at UF https://crrr.phhp.ufl.edu/. The Center brings researchers together from throughout the UF campus in a collaborative effort to advance the understanding and treatment of neuromuscular disorders that compromise respiratory and related non-respiratory movements.
