Research and Teaching

Our current area research focuses on the effect of the environment (hypoxia, hyperbaria, hyperthermia) on the cardiorespiratory system. This work includes the physiology and genetics of Altitude Illness, the interaction between exercise and environmental pollution. Through our clinical work and clinical research we also focus on the prevention and treatment of other illnesses and injuries associated with exercise, including musculoskeletal issues but also asthma and other respiratory conditions.
