The 2022 symposium is scheduled to take place from november 17-18 at the university of calgary, located in alberta, canada.











The Canadian Space Health Research Symposium is a two-day forum for national and international leading scientists and trainees investigating the effects of spaceflights on humans’ health, as well as those whose research has the potential to make a significant contribution to space health. Importantly, the symposium is also a venue for discussing how space health research could impact communities that are confronting a variety of medical conditions on Earth. The symposium is an opportunity for the dissemination of scientific work, the development of collaborative projects, networking, and the engagement of trainees in human health research programs.
