Exploring The Intersection of Medicine And Space
In this fireside chat session with Dr. Shawna Pandya, we’ll explore the fascinating science at the intersection of medicine and space exploration, as well as how what we learn about biology in space can help us better adapt to extreme environments right here on planet Earth.
