It takes a lot of passion a huge amount of money and good people to make a research project in Antarctica come to life.

We’re limited on what we can bring if we’re going to more remote places. We don’t have a general hospital close by, and by Western standards, we might not even have one in the country. You can’t order equipment and you might not be able to bring what you want in. How can we keep high medical standards if we have limited resources and limited equipment?

Knowledge is apower than equipment. So if we cannot bring all the equipment we need to bring knowledge.
