Harvard Catalyst Profiles

Contact, publication, and social network information about Harvard faculty and fellows.

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.
