Health in Space

Room/Stage: Hall D
Focus:
Health and Nanomedicine

Throughout his presentation, Josh will discuss his life as an astronaut, while he waits for a flight assignment and his work representing the CSA at NASA. Josh will focus on the common challenges astronauts face in space with communities in remote and isolated environments and the scientific experiments currently being done on the International Space Station. He will highlight the principal concerns for astronauts on long-duration spaceflights and the considerations we must take before venturing deeper into the cosmos. Josh will present the various fields of activity and technologies in health and biomedicine where the Canadian Space Agency and the rest of Canada could make an important contribution. Finally, he will conclude his presentation by highlighting the current and upcoming space missions you need to keep your eyes on.

The vision of healthcare and personalized medicine

Room/Stage: Hall D
Focus:
Health and Nanomedicine

How far away are we from mainstream personalised medicine? What investments should be done today to make that happen? Do we need to further explore cross disciplinary approaches or intersections of knowledge systems? How are artificial intelligence and machine learning influencing research developments? Will equitable access feature in the future of healthcare and development of medicines?
