Delayed homeothermy in high-atltitude deer mice

Congratulations to Cayleih Robertson for her paper that just came out today in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, entitled:

Development of homeothermic endothermy is delayed in high-altitude native deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus)

This project is the result of Cayleih’s PhD research in Dr. Grant McClelland’s lab. I was lucky enough to be involved with these talented scientists, although all the credit goes to Cayleih for her hard work. What a tour de force of physiology, biochemistry and imaging.
