SelectBIO welcomes you to The Space Summit 2021 to be held September 30-October 1, 2021 at the Wyndham Boston Beacon Hill - Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

The Space Summit 2021 brings together the most up-to-date information on the deployment of life sciences technologies in space aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

Registered delegates receive full access to all co-located,  concurrent events to maximize scientific exchange and networking.

The Space Summit 2021 brings together speakers from various disciplines united by the opportunities to accelerate science and innovation through research in microgravity aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

In this summit, we bring the latest developments relating to stem cells, tissue chips in space, tissue engineering, mechanobiology and 3D-bioprinting in space.

The summit features academic as well as industry presentations from stakeholders in the field and invites companies to participate who are looking to develop technologies synergizing with the experiments aboard the ISS.

Jana Stoudemire (Axiom Space) and Marc Giulianotti (International Space Station US National Laboratory) are the Co-Chairpersons of this Conference.

Major Themes Addressed in this Summit:
  • 3D-Printing in Space
  • Organs-on-Chips in Space
  • Regenerative Medicine
  • Flow & Space Chemistry
This conference will be co-located and held concurrently with The Flow Chemistry Summit 2021 providing full access to all attendees for maximal scientific exchange and networking opportunities.

Proof of Covid-19 Vaccination Required in Order to Participate On-Site at this Event.  Participants Not Vaccinated for Covid-19 Can Participate Virtually at this Event.

Agenda Topics

  • 3D-Bioprinting in Orbit on Station
  • 3D-Organoid Models for Disease in Microgravity Conditions
