Advances in space technology mean space travel will become more common for tourists as spaceflight passengers and for people looking to set up bases to explore the Moon and Mars. But can we study how space tourists, potentially with age and lifestyle-related chronic conditions will fare in space?
Our paper entitled, ''Mitigating sarcoplasmic reticulum stress limits disuse-induced muscle loss in hindlimb unloaded mice'' recently published in the NPJ Microgravity journal unravels the therapeutic potential of a drug to prevent muscle loss in microgravity conditions.
The Gravitational Recovery And Climate Experiment Follow-On (GRACE-FO) mission provides incredibly accurate measurements of changes in the Earth's gravitational field; important for climate scientists, oceanographers and geologists. In our paper, we propose new techniques to enhance such missions.
Our paper entitled “Transcriptional responses of skeletal stem/progenitor cells to hindlimb unloading and recovery correlate with localized but not systemic multi-systems impacts” just published in npj Microgravity, reveals how simulated microgravity alters bone at the stem/progenitor level.
Our paper entitled "Histone deacetylase HDA-4-mediated epigenetic regulation in space-flown C. elegans” just published in npj Microgravity, demonstrates a novel epigenetic modification in response to microgravity environment of space-grown C. elegans.
