    About This Project

    At night the Red Devil (Humboldt) squid rises to the ocean’s surface to feed, but come morning, it begins its descent to the ocean’s depths where it must overcome hypoxic, high-pressure, and near freezing conditions. To survive this extreme environment, it enters a state of suspended animation characterized by decreased energy expenditure and a global shutdown of most cellular functions. Our research will investigate the molecular mechanisms that allow squid to undergo metabolic rate depression.
