Dr. Perry has four ongoing research projects that are unified by a common theme; the adaptation of fish to stressful or extreme environments.
- The role of stress hormones in controlling cardio respiratory function and blood gas transport in fish during environmental disturbances.
- The physiological and molecular nature of gill and renal transepithelial ion movements and their modulation during environmental and acid-base disturbances.
- The molecular basis of hypoxic pre-conditioning in zebra fish and the ontogenetic effects of chronic environmental disturbances on cardio respiratory function.
- The nature of oxygen and carbon dioxide sensing by chemoreceptors and its linkage to cardio respiratory control.
