The stall will showcase our exciting MicroAge1 work undertaken on the International Space Station in December 2021 when we sent engineered 3D skeletal muscle constructs to the ISS and subjected them to ‘exercise’. We will present our exciting findings which demonstrate that the muscle constructs resemble muscles of older people on earth. We will showcase our follow-on MicroAge2 project due to launch to the ISS in 2025. We will provide hands -on equipment to measure muscle strength practically by hand grip measures and squat measurements of leg strength with accredited advice on how to help maintain muscle strength with exercises.
