ABOUT US 

 

APEX (Altitude Physiology Expeditions)  was founded by medical students at the University of Edinburgh in 2001. Since then, hundreds of students have taken part in expeditions investigating the effect of altitude and hypoxia (low oxygen levels) on the human body. The latest expedition, APEX 6 will be in June 2022...

 

RESEARCH 

 

Several research projects will be conducted during the expedition. This includes investigating the effects of altitude on neutrophils (a white blood cell), eye movements called saccades, sleep and pulmonary oedema (fluid on the lungs.) 

 

MEET THE TEAM

A group of four medical students at the University of Edinburgh are organising the latest APEX expedition.
