The Joint Expert Group on Human Biology and Medicine aims to coordinate knowledge and international experience of physicians, psychologists, human physiologists and biologists who are actively engaged in medical support of Antarctic activity, as well as biomedical research in the Antarctic. This effort includes active linkages and integration to work in human biology and medicine in the Arctic, Space missions, and other extreme, remote and austere environments.
The Expert Group on Human Biology and Medicine Group is a joint group with COMNAP.
The Group draws on a vast pool of international experience consisting of doctors, psychologists and human physiologists and biologists who are actively engaged in medicine support and medical and biomedical research in the Antarctic, as well as linkages to the Arctic, Space Medicine, and other areas where healthcare is undertaken in remote and austere environments.
