As humans delve deeper into space exploration, researchers must better understand the medical, psychological and biomedical challenges facing spacefarers. On November 3, 4 and 7, the 2022 International Space Medicine Summit (ISMS) brought together leading experts from the world's spacefaring nations for a series of high-level discussions exploring advances in space medicine research and opportunities for international collaboration. This year's summit took place virtually on Zoom.
Experts from a range of disciplines — including physicians, space biomedical scientists, engineers, astronauts, cosmonauts and educators — representing all International Space Station partners were present at the summit.
The International Space Station provides an excellent laboratory to conduct space medicine research, which can be optimized through cooperative studies and sharing equipment and instruments between the international partners. Sharing information and applying lessons learned from long-duration human spaceflight and analog research environments will not only lead to advances in technology and human knowledge to protect future space travelers, but will also enhance life on Earth.
