WELCOME to the

2nd Australian Space Biology Symposium 

 

UTS in collaboration with Mayo Clinic is hosting ASBS 2020 to showcase and discuss the latest developments in space biology & medicine.

 

ASBS2020 will bring together the international research and industry community to bridge the gap between basic science and technology.

You will hear from a number of world-leading multidisciplinary group of experts about new biological experiments and advances in space research. 

What we hope you may take away


Be inspired – exchanging ideas with colleagues
 

Build new collaborations – connect with old and new colleagues both in academia and industry
 

Create new ideas - identify new areas for your next research project
 

Build new bridges – it can be difficult to find the right partner, here you can start to find the best fit for your project ideas
 

Think further – what are the questions we haven’t asked? What is the next big discovery waiting in space biology?
 

Dream big – what would you like to see happen next, where do you see your work going?
