In addition, the legalization of Cannabis in Canada and various states across the US has created more funding opportunities to understand the pulmonary effects of inhaled cannabis better and improve our understanding of the endocannabinoid system and the potential therapeutic applications.
Dr. Carll’s research focuses on the effects of air pollutants on the heart, and how it impairs cardiac conduction, compromises hemodynamics, and whether such effects occur through the autonomic nervous system. Learn more about Dr. Carll here.
Dr. Noël’s lab studies the mechanisms that underlie the developmental origins of health and disease, with respect to respiratory effects caused by distinct emerging inhaled environmental pollutants. Learn more about her lab here.
Dr. Baglole’s lab focuses on how chronic lung diseases such as COPD are associated with environmental exposures, particularly cigarette smoke. Learn more about her work here.
Dr. Crotty Alexander’s research interests are primarily focused on E-cigarettes. She studies the impact of E-cigarettes on airway inflammation and innate immune function. Check out some of her publications here.
