Space Summit 2023: Chips in Space - Focus on Organs-on-Chips Being Deployed on Board the the International Space Station (ISS): (Orlando, Florida, United States - July 26-27, 2023) -

DUBLIN--()--The "Space Summit 2023: Chips in Space" conference has been added to's offering.

Welcome to The Space Summit 2023: Chips in Space to be held July 26-27, 2023 in Orlando, Florida.

Space Summit 2023 brings together the most up-to-date information on the deployment of life sciences technologies in space aboard the International Space Station (ISS) specifically-focusing on organs-on-chips being deployed on board the ISS.

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

The Space Summit 023 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), and some of the other projects such as the Axiom Station in development.

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 (Sierra Space) are the Co-Chairpersons of this Conference.

Major Themes Addressed in this Summit:

  • 3D-Printing in Space
  • Organs-on-Chips in Space
  • Microphysiological Systems in Space

Agenda Topics

  • 3D-Bioprinting in Orbit on Station
  • 3D-Organoid Models for Disease in Microgravity Conditions
  • Effect of Microgravity on Drug Responses
  • Organs-on-Chips as a Platform for Studying Effects of Microgravity on Human Physiology
  • Tissue Chips in Space NIH/NCATS-ISS US National Laboratory Projects
