Black Bear Hibernation

Black Bear Hibernation

Research by MSI PI Paul Iaizzo (professor, Surgery) is featured in a recent story that appeared on WCCO television. Professor Iaizzo is studying the physiology of hibernating black bears in Minnesota. It is possible that discoveries about how bears maintain cardiac function and bone health during the hibernation period could help human patients. The story can be found on the WCCO-tv website: Black Bear Researchers Study the Secrets of Hibernation.

Professor Iaizzo uses MSI resources to support this hibernation research as well as for developing algorithms for cardiac imaging and for computational modeling of the cardiac cycle and ablation.
