Welcome to our new ‘beta’ website

Welcome to the new ‘beta’ website for the ad astra vita project!

We are hoping that this exciting new initiative provides an opportunity for the whole Australian space life sciences community to participate and “advertise its wares” to the world. We also hope that this will result in increased linkages and collaborations, and consultancy opportunities for those who are keen “to get a foot in the door”.

This is your resource, so please get involved! We would love to hear from people and organisations who are interested in being listed in the Showcase compendium or who would like to join the consultancy team, and if you have a “medicine in extreme environments” link or resource that you would like to share, please let us know!

We look forward to hearing from you!

Dr Rowena Christiansen, founder of the ad astra vita project
