Course Description

The Seasonal School will offer an overview of specific topics of experimental biology and biomedicine in support of human exploration of space. With the dawn of commercial access and exploitation of space, the major space agencies including the Italian Space Agency and the European Space Agency are planning, with industrial support and investments, outposts for human crews to live and work in space. This course represents a unique opportunity to learn about how space exploration has provided experimental biology a new and unprecedented way to study life, and also will highlight the most compelling issues for a safe and productive inhabiting of space. Moreover, since space exploration is by definition a collective endeavor, it will be discuss how work in space may represent an inclusive opportunity.
