The Biology of Breathing (BoB) Theme began in March 2003 and was the first theme-based research group at the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba.
This theme consolidated a broad spectrum of local research strength in pediatric lung health and disease and includes: more than 15 principal investigators and collaborating investigators working in concert to carry out world-class research in pediatric pulmonary disorders.
This includes five core research facilities that provide capacity spanning molecular biology and lung physiology assessment; and offers an interactive, multi-disciplinary training program for basic and clinical trainees that is linked to nationally supported research training networks.
Biology of Breathing includes four research areas of broad and complementary scope:
Asthma Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment
Smooth Muscle Biology in Lung Health and Disease
Novel Animal Models of Human Lung Disease
Biology and Disease in the Developing Lung
