Event Details

Previous studies on the space station have shown that microgravity changes the overall size, shape, and strength of astronauts’ hearts. But until recently, no one looked at individual heart cells. Join Dr. Donna Roberts, Chief Science Officer at the ISS National Lab, for a conversation with previous space station researcher Dr. Arun Sharma and ISS National Lab Implementation Partner BioServe as they discuss the innovative approach used to tackle this complex research, with results that could profoundly impact humanity.
