The Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet has decided to award the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine jointly to: WILLIAM G. KAELIN JR, SIR PETER J. RATCLIFFE, GREGG L. SEMENZA. for their discoveries of how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability

Hypoxianet is a Spanish consortium of researchers with a common interest in the study of the cellular and molecular mechanisms that mediate the responses to changes in oxygen availability.

As hypoxia occurs in a wide range of physio- and pathologic states, including (but not limited to) neoplasic, ischemic, neurodegenerative, inflammatory and respiratory diseases, the implications of this research field for health and disease is far reaching. is an open initiative that aims to engage basic, clinical and industrial researchers to promote critical discussion of ideas and results sharing reagents and multidisciplinary expertise.

HypoxiaNET is committed to address synergistic and ambitious projects to bring forward basic pioneering contributions and jointly drive synergy in developing the translational potential of the hypoxia research.
