A brief overview of what CASE is doing at present

  • Altitude

    Our flagship project is the Xtreme-Everest medical research expedition to the summit of Mount Everest (8848m) which took place in the spring of 2007.

  • Space

    CASE has collaborative projects with NASA exploring gene-environment (microgravity) interactions and the development of new medical technologies.

  • Dive and Hyperbaric

    Investigating the association between mitochondrial dysfunction and sepsis using hyperbaric hyperoxia. Currently completing a Cochrane Systematic Review of the role of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in necrotising fasciitis. Mixed gas diving and recompression table modeling.

  • Extreme Temperatures

    Members of our team have a great deal of experience treating those with heat and cold injuries, lecturing on these topics around the world.

  • Aviation

    We are part of a collaborative group holding an EU FP7 grant "The integrated cabin environment". Our contribution is an investigation of cabin hypoxia tolerance in individuals with cardio-respiratory limitation.
