Dean's Research Seminar Series: Improving Life on Earth in Space

Improving Life on Earth in Space

The microgravity environment is a new frontier for discovery and innovation. Learn how science in space will affect life on Earth.

The new Dean's Research Seminar Series is launching with guest speaker Jana Stoudemire, Director of Commercial Innovation at Space Tango, Kentucky U.S.A. who will inspire us with the science already being carried out in space.

The microgravity environment is a new frontier for discovery and innovation. The first business case in space is for medicine & health - the next cancer drug might be developed and patented in space.

Understanding the impact of microgravity at a cellular and molecular level will have useful applications here on Earth as well as preparing humans for future space exploration and life in space.

Space Tango is focused on creating a new global market 250 miles up in low Earth orbit and envisions a future where the next important breakthroughs in both healthcare and technology will occur off the planet.

Date: Thursday 5 September
Time: 5.30pm - 6.30pm
Cost: Free

Following the seminar there will be the opportunity for networking over light refreshments.
