Join us at the AIAA Los Angeles - Las Vegas Section meeting to explore in-space drug development with SpaceBox Scientific! Discover how spaceflight conditions are reshaping pharmaceutical innovation and why big pharma is heading to space.

Hear from our speakers, Yaroslav Zaplatnikov and Alina Voronina, finalists of the 2023 Humans in Space Challenge. They'll delve into the use cases of space-based biomedical research. SpaceBox Scientific, a pioneering startup, is democratizing life science experiments for everyone, from major pharmaceutical companies to universities and high schools.

Meet Alina Voronina, Chief Business Development Officer at SpaceBox Scientific. Her research career started early at the age of 12 when she was a scientist at the Junior Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Currently, Alina is a member of the New York Academy of Sciences and is actively involved in cancer and organoid studies!

Yaroslav Zaplatnikov, founder and CEO of SpaceBox Scientific. With his expertise in molecular biology and genetics, Yaroslav has teamed up with aerospace and biomedicine experts, to develop automated life sciences minilabs for scalable microgravity research.

Join us at the AIAA meeting for this enlightening session!

Modulating the DNA Repair Response to Shield Astronauts from Cancer

Devon Lundine is a post-doctoral research fellow at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. He completed his doctoral training at the CUNY Graduate Center where he examined DNA replication speeds in triple-negative breast cancers harboring mutant p53 proteins. Currently, he focuses primarily on DNA repair mechanisms and has projects in the radiosensitization of HPV+ cancers, and in radioprotection for astronauts during long-term spaceflight missions.
