UCL has extensive expertise in the area of Space Science and Medicine, and has recently created a Centre for Space Medicine (CSM) which will sit within the Mullard Space Science Laboratory (UCL MSSL). Dr Anna Clark provided key support to this initiative, organised signed agreements with the international space agencies, NASA and Roscosmos, and was responsible for initial project funding from ISTC. She was also a participating member of the Gagarin Advocacy Group, responsible for the 50 Years of Manned Space Flight celebrations in London in 2011.UCL is involved with several other space initiatives, including research into the behavioural psychology of space crews.
The UCL Centre for Space Medicine aims to facilitate space exploration and improve the quality of life on Earth through cross-disciplinary collaboration and open innovation.
