Xtreme Everest 2: unlocking the secrets of the Sherpa phenotype?
Extrem Physiol Med. 2013 Oct 23;2(1):30
In celebration of our departure to Nepal on Friday, we've gone back into the archives to ten years ago when we were setting off on this new adventure.
During the next few weeks, during the 10th Anniversary Trek to Everest Base Camp, the Xtreme Everest Oxygen Research Consortium will be carrying out a number of experiments to learn more about how the human body adapts to high altitude, where oxygen levels are low.
Xtreme Everest is a dedicated team of intensive care doctors, nurses and scientists. They conduct experiments on themselves and other volunteers at high altitude in order to develop novel therapies to improve the survival rates of their patients.
