Defying Gravity: How Space-Based Stem Cell Research Could Revolutionize Medicine

Cedars-Sinai sends stem cells to space

Cedars-Sinai investigators, in partnership with Axiom Space of Houston, are preparing to send stem cells to space in early May to study the effects of microgravity on their production. This groundbreaking mission, funded by NASA, will involve astronauts manufacturing induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) aboard the International Space Station (ISS) for the first time. The […]
