Dear Community Members,
As announced during the general public meeting this past Saturday, Dr. Anna Dirienzo, Professor at the University of Chicago (Department of Human Genetics) is conducting a research with other fellow scientists on how Tibetans live healthy lives despite living in harsh, high altitude environment of the Tibetan plateau. Their studies, till now, have shown that Tibetans have an ancient historical and unique biological features that result from millennia of adaption to the challenging environment of the plateau. Considering the present changing environment and lifestyles, they are interested to see if there are any differences. They have worked with many Tibetans in the Tibetan Autonomous Region amd Nepal as well as the Tibetan Alliance of Chicago. They are now seek the possibility of working with the Wisconsin Tibetan Association. It is their hope that the outcome of this work will benefit and advance the well being of the Tibetan population and others living in similarly harsh environment.
If anyone from WTA is interested in participating in this research, please contact Dr. Anna by email email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 773-834-1037 OR me. Please bear in mind that there could be some paper work. Detailed information is available on our website: wistib.org
