Dr. Timothy Hammond explains his latest research - Yeast
Dr. Hammond has performed extensive research utilizating the NASA Space Shuttle program and the ISS (International Space Station).
Previous investigations on the U.S. Space Shuttle showed changes in this assay in space. Dr. Hammond seeks to demonstrate that these changes can be used for discovery and evaluation of drugs such as cancer therapeutics. Initial experiments studying existing drugs may reveal new uses for these drugs--while optimizing the experimental methodology and paving the way for future experiments.
