Stem Cell Studies On Station

Stem Cell Studies On Station

This new mission is based on the stem cell research of Dr. Abba Zubair.  The investigation studies whether stem cells will grow faster in microgravity and be of sufficient quality for use in treatment of a variety of medical conditions here on Earth.

Students engage in authentic International Space Station National Laboratory sponsored stem cell research as they follow the work of Dr. Zubair from pre-launch through recovery and analysis using actual experiment data.

Recommended for middle and high school students
