SelectBIO welcomes you to The 2019 Space Summit to be held October 14-15, 2019 at the Marriott Coronado Island — Coronado Island, California.

The Space Summit 2019 brings together the most up-to-date information on the deployment of life sciences technologies in space aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

Co-located and held concurrently with the following synergistic conferences:
  • Organ-on-a-Chip World Congress 2019
  • 3D-Culture and Organoids 2019
  • Stem Cells in Drug Discovery and Tox Screening
  • 3D-Printing in the Life Sciences
Registered delegates receive full access to all these co-located concurrent events to maximize scientific exchange and networking.

The Space Summit 2019 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 (Space Tango) and Marc Giulianotti (International Space Station US National Laboratory) are the Co-Chairpersons of this Conference.

Information and Local Registration Facilities for this Conference are Also Available In:
