Altitude research partnership with University of Heidelberg and University of California in San Diego

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.
