From NASA to MSK: Exercise Oncology


NASA scientists have used exercise to mitigate the deconditioning experienced by astronauts in space for over 50 years. In this introduction to the new field of exercise oncology, Dr. Jessica Scott will discuss her research examining how NASA’s countermeasures program may help to prevent or reverse multisystem toxicity after a diagnosis of cancer. 

This talk is part of the quarterly MSK Student Seminar series, created to share our expertise with students, communicate the excitement of cancer research, and create a learning community at MSK.  

Time: 5:30 pm-6:30 pm (with pre-talk pizza in RRL lobby 5-5:30!)
