Rachel Clemens/ ISS/CASIS

A fun interview with Rachel the Commercial Innovation Manager of ISS/CASIS on her earlier life as a scientist at NASA Ames Research Center, on why working with ISS/CASIS is even more relevant today to all of us, and how it has already had early successes in the commercialization of a few late projects. Rachel also shared with us the challenges we are facing towards scaling such activities and what it is like to attend a party of a rocket launch.  Her full written interview is published here. Rachel will be speaking at 3DHEALS2020 (and answering questions) on microgravity/ISS for 3D printing directly.

Rachel Clemens
has focused her career on advancing life science research and product development through experiments in space. In her current role as a Commercial Innovation Manager at the ISS US National Lab, she brings life science research to low earth orbit. She leads partnership development with life science companies – she finds that every sector, from start-ups to big pharma, can benefit from research in space. She is eager to entertain even the craziest of ideas and passionate about finding new solutions to Earth-bound problems. 

After earning a PhD in Molecular Biology from Oregon Health and Science University, Rachel became a Scientist at NASA Ames Research Center leading research on how microgravity affects host-immune systems and microbial pathogenesis. In addition to her current role at the National Lab, Rachel volunteers as a Scientific Project Manager at the Rare Genomics Institute, which connects rare disease patients around the world and provides tools and support to the greater rare disease community. She is based in San Francisco, CA where she blazes trails on foot, conquers hills by bike, and bravely hosts dinner parties in her micro-studio.
