Dr Ned Gilbert, Research Leader, UCL Centre for Altitude Space and Extreme Environment Medicine (CASE)

Following their successful ascent of Mount Everest in 2007, UCL’s Centre for Altitude, Space and Extreme Environment (CASE) Medicine will be returning to Everest in March 2013 to continue with their novel approach to medical research. Their work aims to investigate the effects of low oxygen on the human body, with the ultimate goal of identifying mechanisms that may lead to the successful treatment of critically ill patients. Dr Ned Gilbert, marks 60 years since Hillary attained the summit by setting out what they hope to achieve at Everest this Spring.
