UofT Talks Presents:

Interstellar Health: Medicine to New Heights

Virtual Panel Discussions on Space Medicine and Research

This event took place on June 2, 2022

Panel 1: Intersection Between Space and Medicine

Panel 2: Emerging and Future Trends in Space Medicine


Recent advances in both private and public sectors have created tremendous strides in advancing the vision of humanity beyond Earth. In 2021, an estimated $92 billion were spent worldwide on the space sector, indicating that nations worldwide are committed to the vision.

Interstellar Health: Medicine to New Heights is an event aimed at exploring the intersections between space and medicine. Through two panel discussions, we addressed pressing questions regarding the past, present, and future of aerospace medicine. Through the diverse perspectives of physicians, researchers, astronauts, and bioethicists, we learned about how we can overcome barriers, increase collaboration, and work towards a more comprehensive and inclusive vision of healthcare in space. And of course, we learned about how these advances can affect our lives here on Earth!
