Our NIH MIRA (Maximizing Investigator’s Research Award) has been funded by the National Institute for General Medical Sciences! Using a combination of controlled-laboratory and semi-wild field studies, our research will exploit natural variation in populations of the North American Deer Mouse as a means to dissect the genetic and molecular mechanisms by which natural selection reshapes physiology in the process of adaptation to high altitude. Stay tuned for research highlights!
