At the NTNU Barophysiology group we study the physiological and pathological effects of diving and extreme environmental exposures.
Our primary aim is to provide research-based knowledge that may prevent injury in divers and others who venture into extreme environments.
The group's current main activity is the project Fitness to dive – a translational approach to physiological challenges in the hyperbaric working environment, where we study how the body reacts to diving and elevated ambient pressure. The research is funded by the Norwegian Research Council and Statoil ASA through the Petromaks2-programme. We collaborate with researchers in Norway and abroad, and welcome students of medicine and natural sciences.
