Space Medicine Ireland – Inaugural Meeting

SMI welcomes you to our inaugural meeting. Meet like-minded colleagues and learn more about the fascinating world of space medicine.



Space Medicine Ireland is pleased to present its inaugural meeting. SMI aims to bring like-minded space medicine enthusiasts together for networking and information sharing in the space medicine sphere. It has already led to research collaborations and the development of space med educational resources but we want to do more!

Our keynote speaker is the multi-talented Dr. Shawna Pandya who will be delivering her talk on ‘Medical Guidelines for Commercial Suborbital Spaceflight – Who Gets to Go?’

This meeting will launch our first ever space medicine bursary worth €500 to our winning essayist. The bursary winner will present their essay at the meeting.
