Associate Professor Emeritus

Email: klmcgilliard@eiu.edu

Dr. McGilliard is interested in the physiology and pharmacology of the respiratory system, particularly as it relates to breathing disorders in the newborn infant. His research projects include the effects of respiratory stimulant drugs and opiates on the control of breathing and on the contractility of respiratory muscles in the newborn rat.

Under his supervision, students have written theses on the effects of xanthine analogs and hormones on respiratory control and respiratory muscle function. He has received funding for his research from the National Institutes of Health and the American Lung Association. Other interests include endocrinology and computer simulations.
