The UC San Diego Center for Physiological Genomics of Low Oxygen (CPGLO) is a multidisciplinary team that supports collaborative research on the biology of hypoxia in natural populations and model systems. The goal is to explain individual differences in responses to hypoxia that are observed in patients with heart and lung disease, as well as in human and animal populations living at high altitude. CPGLO provides resources for this such as The Genetics of Altitude Adaptation Consortium (TGAAC), which collates genomic data from high-altitude human populations collected by different research groups for analysis on a common platform. CPGLO is co-directed by faculty from the UCSD School of Medicine (Simonson, Malhotra, Powell), Scripps Institution of Oceanography (Ponganis) and UCSD Dept. of Anthropology (Non) to promote interdisciplinary collaborations and innovative large-scale research projects. CPGLO sponsors in-person and virtual meetings to plan grant proposals plus an annual summit with international leaders in the field to identify new research opportunities and priorities.
InstructionsTwo simultaneous breakout sessions are scheduled from
1:30-2:30pm (Session 1 and Session 2) and two more from
2:45-3:45pm (Session 3 and Session 4) Tuesday afternoon in the
second-floor conference rooms in MET.
Each session will be facilitated by CPGLO members. These "think-tank" sessions will be structured around specific themes* relevant to CPGLO grant proposals. We encourage Participants to bring relevant proposal ideas to any of the sessions. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Registered Participants may refer to the back of their nametag for their scheduled Sessions provided at check in. PLEASE BE SURE TO ATTEND YOUR REGISTERED SESSION.
In the final 15 minutes of each Session, Participants will help create a summary that will be presented by one or two members of their group in the
MET Lower Auditorium at 4:00pm. Prizes will be awarded based on the most innovative, interdisciplinary, fundable ideas.
