Support for a development of a novel, high-fidelity environmental chamber for studies of the impact of variations in oxygen concentration and pressure. The chamber, which allows modulation of atmospheric and pressure factors to mimic hypobaric, hypoxic conditions at high altitude, holds potential to serve as a core facility for researchers in areas that include cardiology and pulmonology, cancer, metabolism, and exercise science and nutrition.
