Jessica Caterini

Jessica is a doctoral student at the University of Toronto and the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada. Her background is in respiratory physiology with a special focus on the factors that govern respiration during exercise. She uses magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging to determine peripheral and central responses to exercise non-invasively because respiration and exercise tolerance are strongly determined by peripheral skeletal muscle function. Jessica has worked in the past with clinical cohorts including children with pulmonary hypertension, Turner syndrome, obesity, and Cystic fibrosis. Her doctoral work will examine the efficacy of CFTR modulator therapy in attenuating exercise intolerance in Cystic fibrosis.
