The Space Summit 2023, also known as “Chips in Space,” is an event organized by SelectBIO and scheduled to be held on July 26-27, 2023, in Orlando, Florida, cochaired by Jana Stoudemire from Axiom Space and Marc Giulianotti from Sierra Space.

The summit focuses on the deployment of life sciences technologies in space, particularly on the International Space Station (ISS), with a specific emphasis on organs-on-chips technology.

The conference brings together experts and professionals from various disciplines to share the most up-to-date information and research related to microgravity experiments on the ISS. It also covers other space projects such as the Axiom Station.

Key topics of discussion at the summit include stem cells, tissue chips in space, tissue engineering, mechanobiology, and 3D-bioprinting in space. The event features academic and industry presentations from stakeholders in the field, providing an opportunity for networking and scientific exchange. The major themes addressed in the summit are 3D-printing in space, organs-on-chips in space, and microphysiological systems in space. This conference aims to foster collaboration and innovation in the space research community, encouraging companies interested in developing technologies related to experiments aboard the ISS to participate.

Dr. Yupeng Chen was one of the keynote speakers in the event.
