Coming Home

Posted on May 11th, 2012 by Admin

The Mayo Clinic Everest Research team is scheduled to arrive home tomorrow evening, landing at the Minneapolis airport at 7:15. The team will then rest up for a bit and reunite in the lab at Mayo to begin evaluation of data while they await the summiting of the two North Face/National Geographic climbing teams in coming days. We will continue to post information on the science and updates on their expedition. Stay tuned for all the video we've not been able to post due to transmission limitations from the mountain, more impressions of Nepal and more great graphics and science.

"I just need to pick up a few things…on my way to Everest."

Just before the Mayo research team left for Mount Everest some of the members realized they were short a few items. So our medical researchers (Bryan, Alex and Amine) made a quick trip to the "corner store".  [Shooting and editing by Dan Dwyer]
