HOUGHTON - When Dr. John West and his team scaled Mount Everest in 1981, they weren't just going for the view. West was the principal investigator on the American Medical Research Expedition to Mount Everest and conducted the first measurements of human physiology on the summit. West shared some of the difficulties facing his team and the results they were able to obtain with a group of Michigan Technological University students during an open seminar Wednesday afternoon sponsored by the American Physiological Society and the Michigan Tech Department of Kinesiology and Integrative Physiology.
