PhD Trainee Jack Leacy delivers an Oral Communication at The Extreme Environmental Physiology Symposium
Congratulations to PhD trainee Jack Leacy who delivered an oral presentation entitled “Cardiorespiratory hysteresis during incremental high-altitude ascent-descent quantifies the magnitude of ventilatory acclimatization in healthy participants” at the Extreme Environmental Physiology symposium, a meeting of the Physiological Society.
This symposium focused on human adaptation and function under the most severe climates and environments. Jack’s talk focused on the utility of a novel metric for tracking ventilatory acclimatisation during high-altitude exposure. Jack is supervised by Prof. Ken O’Halloran, Department of Physiology, and this work was carried out in collaboration with his co-supervisor, Dr. Trevor Day, Mount Royal University, Calgary, following an international research expedition to the Nepal Himalaya.
