Ines Antunes's Biography

Ines Antunes, Science Coordinator, European Space Agency (ESA)

I have graduated in Bioengineering in Portugal and completed my masters in collaboration with TU Delft in The Netherlands. After that I joined the Space business in ESA and also in Airbus, initially working in Space Operations to ultimately end in the ESA Directorate of Human and Robotic Exploration Programmes, coordinating ESA research in Life Sciences and more specifically research in humans. In my current position I work with a large scientific community distributed worldwide in many fields of human and health research and collaborate with NASA, JAXA, CSA, IBMP and European National Space Agencies to enable human space exploration while bringing the benefits of our research endeavors back to earth applications.

Presentation of the challenges faced by astronauts during long-duration space missions and how the European Space Agency (ESA) is supporting their health and performance through research on the impact of space conditions on the human body and the development of countermeasures and point of care technologies to investigate changes and mitigate those consequences. The presentation will focus on ESA's SciSpacE team, which conducts research in ground analogues, suborbital platforms, and on the International Space Station (ISS), and how the research conducted in space can benefit terrestrial medicine. The process of ideation, call for proposals, review, selection, and implementation of research projects will also be outlined. The presentation aims to provide insights into how ESA is working to keep astronauts healthy and productive during long-term space missions and how these efforts can also benefit medical science on Earth.
