NASA: SpaceX Launch & ISB’s Link

March 1, 2013

Just how vast is the reach of systems biology? Our president, Dr. Lee Hood, was invited to join the board of directors of CASIS (Center for the Advancement of Science in Space). NASA chose CASIS to be the sole manager of the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory. Lee was invited to watch the SpaceX CRS-2 Mission launch this morning at Cape Canaveral – and stay for a board meeting. “It’s one of the most active boards I’ve ever participated in,” Lee commented prior to his trip.
