Fabiola León-Velarde Servetto

Born June 18, 1956 (1956-06-18) (age 53)
Residence Perú
Nationality Peruvian
Fields High altitude biology and physiology
Institutions Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia

Fabiola Leon-Velarde Servetto (June 18, 1956) is a notable Peruvian physiologist who has devoted her research to the field of the biology and physiology of adaptation to high altitude. She obtained a BSc. in Biology (1979) and an MSc (1981) and DSc (1986) in physiology at Cayetano Heredia University in Lima, Perú under the supervision of the world-renowned high altitude physiologist Dr. Carlos Monge Cassinelli. Before assuming the Vice- Presidency of Research of the UPCH, she was Head of the Department of Biological and Physiological Sciences at the same University. At the present time she is also Head of the Unit of Oxygen Transport of the “High Altitude Research Institute (IIA-UPCH)” and Director of the Laboratory of Comparative Physiology of the Faculty of Sciences. She has also been Vice president of the International Society for Mountain Medicine and, during nine years has been doing collaborative research with the Human Respiratory Section of the Laboratory of Physiology of the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, where she has been invited as "Fellow" of the "Queen's College". At the moment, she is also Associated Investigator of ARPE/UFR of Medicine of the University of Paris XIII in France.

She has been consultant in diverse national and international institutions, including the International Center of Research for Development (CIID) of Canada, on the problems of health in the Andean Region and of the International Labor Organization (OIT). In the last years she has participated as Consultant in the Antamina Mining Project and at the Andean Organism of Health. At the present time, she is member of the Review Committees from the National Council of Science and Technology [CONCYTEC] and from the National Agency for Scientific and Technological Promotion (SECYT-FONCYT), as well as from the International Foundation for Sciences (IFS).

Dr. Leon-Velarde has a vast scientific production that has been published in more than 80 summaries and more than 100 articles in international scientific journals and is author of chapters in several books on altitude sickness and related topics particularly in the Andes. She is A member of important scientific societies such as the American Physiological Society and the Academy of Sciences of Latin America.
