The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF) is excited to announce its first virtual Scientific Connections Conference with presentation tracks spanning across the applied STEM disciplines: biotech/product development, space/engineering, artificial intelligence/computer science, and environmental. This conference, presented by ASF and Ann & Gordon Brown, will feature a mix of speakers to include Astronaut Scholar Alumni to current Astronaut Scholars, representing the 35+ years the Scholarship has been in existence, paired with other industry speakers, including CEOs. Confirmed international speakers represent prestigious companies such as Applied Research Associates, Baylor College of Medicine, NASA, Precision Bioscience, Princeton University, Sandia National Labs, The Space Telescope Science Institute and Visikol, in addition to an invited FDA-CBER speaker. Two tracks will run each day and expected attendance is between 250-1,000 participants.

Special Guest Speaker: Sir Gregory Paul Winter FRS is a Nobel Prize winning molecular biologist best known for his work on developing technologies to make therapeutic monoclonal antibodies for treatment of non-infectious diseases. His inventions have been used in top selling pharmaceutical drugs, including for treatment of multiple sclerosis, cancer and rheumatoid arthritis. He has combined his research at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology (Cambridge, UK) with entrepreneurial activities and has founded three biotech companies.
