Entering a new academic year can sometimes feel like roaming through uncharted waters. The same can be said for entering a new semester in the Kacena Lab. Some things may be different, but what remains the same is our dedication to research and providing the highest level of training.
All students, post docs, faculty, and staff that spend time with our lab have had a once in a lifetime opportunity to observe and learn more about bone healing and contribute in their own way to our spaceflight studies.
As we continue our journey of Bone Healing in Space in the Kacena Lab, some faces will change, yet some will remain the same. Please join us as we welcome our new lab members and welcome back those returning.
