Invited Speakers

We are honored to host a distinguished panel of invited speakers who contribute to the study of psychological and behavioral factors in respiration from a variety of perspectives.


Richard Kinkead, Ph.D., is a Professor at the Department of Pediatrics of Laval University, Québec, in Canada, supported by a Canada Research Chair in Respiratory Neurobiology. He has worked on animal models of neonatal maternal separation stress and neuroendocrine programming of the respiratory control system, providing important contributions to our understanding of the maturation and plasticity of the central nervous system regulation of ventilation. His work also provides important insights into early-life risk factors for panic and anxiety disorders.

Kyle T.S. Pattinson, BM DPhil FRCA, is a Consultant Anesthetist and Associate Professor at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Oxford University, UK. He has worked extensively on the central nervous system regulation of respiratory control and has used the latest functional magnetic resonance imaging techniques to elucidate pathways and functional subdivisions of control centers. Other aspects of his research include imaging of brain perfusion changes following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage and respiratory adaptation to high altitude. His work has been published in leading peer-reviewed journals of neuroscience and physiology.

Jose Luis Lopez-Campos, M.D., is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Seville University and a Pulmonologist at Virgen del Rocio University Hospital in Seville, Spain where he is in charge of the specialized Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease outpatient clinic. He has worked extensively on various aspects of clinical care for COPD patients, including the organization of pulmonary rehabilitation and assessment of patients’ perception of dyspnea and disease status. His work has been associated with large-scale national and European research collaborations and guideline initiatives. At the ISARP meeting, he will present a keynote address on "The importance of patient's perception in COPD assessment".
