By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

This story was previously published in Discovery’s Edge, Mayo Clinic’s research magazine. Space—with near-zero gravity, no atmosphere, and extremes of heat and cold—is an unusual and often hostile environment. But it’s also an opportunity—for medical researchers who see maladies and phenomena they can scarcely examine in the familiar environment of Earth. Several Mayo Clinic researchers […]
