Two of the most prominent centers for altitude research in the world are University of Heidelberg, led by Peter Bartsch MD and University of California in San Diego, with John West MD.
Dr Christine Ebert-Santos met with five of their affiliated researchers while in San Diego where she presented her case on trauma and HAPE at the American Thoracic Society conference.
They are interested in partnering with Ebert Family Clinic for a study related
to the genetics of high altitude, using our area as an intermediate altitude location.
