Innovations in Life Science on the International Space Station
*** RSVP Required: https://www.cvent.com/c/express/6e7b643b-1298-4178-a7b5-6b5c5237de1c *** The International Space Station is a platform for commercial innovation that is accessible to a wide range of users. What makes research and development in microgravity so special? Join the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) during this Expanding Horizons Salon to learn how space-related ventures are advancing innovations in health, medical, engineering, consumer products, and other markets. You'll make new connections with other curious, creative, and ambitious thought leaders, share experiences, and spark unexpected ideas for collaborating in ways you've never imagined. Speaker: Arun Sharma, Ph.D. is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Harvard Medical School Department of Genetics in the lab of Drs. Jon and Christine Seidman. His research focuses on the applications of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) for studying cardiovascular biology, modeling diseases “in a dish,” and high-throughput screening of drug toxicity. As a graduate student at Stanford University in the labs of Dr. Joseph Wu and Dr. Sean Wu, he led an effort to send a sample of hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes to the International Space Station to investigate the effects of microgravity on human heart function.
