Altitude Research Center

Improving life through research on how hypoxia affects health and performance

A continuous supply of oxygen is essential for proper physical and mental functioning. If this supply is compromised for any reason, a condition called hypoxia, or a lack of oxygen, results.

Large gaps still exist in our understanding of how the body is impacted by hypoxia. The Altitude Research Center studies hypoxia using the full array of modern medical research tools.

The Altitude Research Center has programs in three distinct areas:

  1. Integrative physiology
  2. Cellular, molecular, and genetic biology
  3. Epidemiology
