Episode 13 - Mice in Space: Characterizing Mouse Skeletal Muscles After 35-37 Days of Spaceflight Preprints in Motion

    • Life Sciences

This week we discuss mice in space and the impact of prolonged space flight and how this can relate to austraunoughts with Jessica L Braun @jess_l_braun a PhD Student at the Brock University @BrockUniversity. Jessica speaks about her work looking at soleus and tibialis anterior muscles of mice which have spent 35-37 days on the international space station comparing Ca2+ uptake and SERCA function. We discuss everything from a mice mission control to cardigan rhythms and the different effects on males and female mice. We also talk about preprints and the increased attention it can bring as well as how to improve public engagement.
