Welcome. We are group of evolutionary biologists studying how animals adapt to some of the most extreme environments on earth. Our research blends physiology, genomics, and evolutionary theory.

The Velotta Lab is based at the University of Denver, in the mile high city, Denver, Colorado. We love being in the mountains, near the environments we study.

WE’RE RECRUITING FALL 2021! If you are a student interested in evolutionary biology, physiology, and/or genomics of vertebrates, e-mail me at jonathan.velotta@du.edu

The Velotta Lab is proudly located in the Department of Biology Sciences at the University of Denver
