Learning from Whales

Duke University Bass Connections

Mission: We are a team of Duke University undergraduate and graduate students striving to understand how marine mammals tolerate hypoxia - the lack of oxygen - by studying their molecular and genetic adaptations and responses. We seek to apply research findings to a clinical setting for human health research.
