Laura Kathryn Gell, Ph.D.


I began my postdoctoral fellowship in the Division of Sleep Medicine in January 2020, researching the pathophysiology of obstructive sleep apnea, with a focus on respiratory drive and upper airway muscle responses. I am interested in the mechanisms underpinning airway stability and collapse during sleep, particularly in the context of novel pharmacological therapies for OSA, with the ultimate goal of identifying those that best respond to treatment.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
