Sovaris Aerospace team members have been invited to present 3 lectures at the Next-Generation Suborbital Researchers Conference in February. Astronauts, researchers, educators, and senior government officials, including the director of NASA’s Ames Research Center, Dr. Pete Worden, the head of the FAA’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation, Dr. George Nield, NASA Deputy Administrator Lori Garver, representatives from commercial spacecraft providers, and the Commercial Spaceflight Federation, will be among the speakers at the Conference.

The Sovaris team has been asked to present on life sciences, as well as on informatics and biotech payload topics, including: 1) Three Dimensional Human Tissues as Surrogates for Research into Human Cellular Genomics, Proteomics, and Metabolomics During Suborbital Space Flight, 2) Reducing the Complexities of Integrating Suborbital Capabilities, and 3) Space Biomedicine and Space Explorer Physiology.

The Next-Generation Suborbital Researchers Conference, which is being convened by the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), the Universities Space Research Association (USRA), the Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI), and the Commercial Spaceflight Federation (CSF), is intended to allow scientists, engineers, and educators to learn about the research and education capabilities of commercial suborbital spacecraft, and to hear from this broad research community on potential research and education applications and user requirements.
