"After" Tests Now Underway

By @

With many experiments it boils down to a "before" and an "after" --- today was the after experience for North Face's Derek Campbell and Mayo's Joel Streed. They were both back in the lab on Mayo's Rochester campus running through the same bank of tests they did before leaving for Everest over a month ago.

"These tests are important," says Bryan Taylor, Ph.D., "They help us determine how long the effects of altitude last in different individuals and, correspondingly, how long it takes for them to regain their normal physiological levels."
