RWTH Aachen University lecture series

In RWTH Aachen University in Germany, I organize and give a weekly Space Medicine Lecture Series. The program consists of 10 lectures, including an introduction to the field, its history, an overview of space medicine, and continuing with more specialized lectures on key topics such as the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal system, pressure/atmosphere and radiation. Guest lecturers explain how to fly a spacecraft, what space radiation is and where it comes from. The highlight is the visit of a real astronaut! The lecture series gives students a thorough understanding of what space medicine is about and which challenges we are facing on the way to Mars.

Find videos of the lectures from summer semester 2015 HERE and from winter semester 2016/2017 HERE.

Book presentations and lectures for the public

I frequently give book presentations and public lectures on space medicine. Outreach is really important to me!
