Dr Liesl Wandrag has recently spoken to the Imperial College podcast team all about her time on the mountain with the Xtreme Everest team in 2007. She, alongside 24 other investigators spent three months processing our trekkers through our testing protocol.

Liesl, who is an Honorary Clinical Research Fellow at Imperial College London, recalls both the good and the bad times on the mountain. When asked what her role was, she mentioned that alongside helping with the testing she was also the keeper of the snacks which meant she was “either the most popular or least popular person on the trip”.
