Phillips Lab

Aaron Phillips, CEP, MSc, PhD (Medicine)

Our research intersects integrated physiology and neuroscience in order to understand autonomic function. Currently, the laboratory has two primary foci. The first is to develop a neurostimulation therapy to improve autonomic function for people with spinal cord injury. The second is to understand the mechanisms underlying neurovascular regulation in the human central nervous system.

I am currently working with interdisciplinary teams of scientists, clinicians, and engineers in Switzerland (EPFL), Croatia (Split Medical School), and the USA (University of Minnesota) to deeply understand the capacity of electrical stimulation of the spinal cord to control autonomic function. We have routine trainee exchanges with these sites. We publish our work in journals such as JAMA Neurology, Neurology, Journal of Neurotrauma, Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism, Journal of Physiology, and AJP-Heart and Circ.

Welcome to the lab and feel free to contact us if you want to learn more, or even better, join our team!
