The LEAP (Laboratory of Ecological and Adaptational Physiology) lab studies the physiological adaptations and mechanism of animals in extreme and changing environmental conditions. The LEAP applies the Krogh Principle to answer questions pertaining to how vertebrates are influenced or overcome environmental perturbations. Because questions and models are limitless, the LEAP studies everything from zebra fish to rats to pinnipeds to baleen whales; on such topics as toxicology, metabolomics, lipidomics, diabetes and digestive physiology.
LEAP congratulates Dr. Colby Moore on the completion of her PhD research! We look forward to collaborating with Dr. Moore on future projects!
LEAP also welcomes Jen Godfrey and Tori Norrell-Neises to the lab! They both come with backgrounds in marine mammal respiratory physiology from Alaska Pacific University. Welcome Jen and Tori!
