Featuring Keynote Speaker:

Isabelle Tremblay
Director, Astronauts, Life sciences and space medicine, Canadian Space Agency

For more than 20 years, Isabelle Tremblay has devoted her career to space exploration, with the conviction that this audacious quest, intrinsic to humans, has the power to project us into the future, to catalyze innovation and to unite us. ​

As the Director, Astronauts, Life Sciences and Space Medicine, Isabelle is accountable for Canada’s participation in human spaceflight missions. This includes Canadian astronauts, operational space medicine, as well as Canada’s utilization of the International Space Station (ISS), which is centered on health and life sciences research to identify, characterize and mitigate health risks associated with spaceflight. Currently, her team is also evaluating potential contributions in the area of health and biomedical technologies for deep space exploration, beyond Earth orbit, such as to the Moon and Mars.

Previously, Isabelle worked as a research and development engineer in space robotics and as a senior engineer and technical lead for Canadian contributions to international planetary exploration and astronomy missions, namely NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander, which operated on Mars in 2008, and the James Webb Space Telescope, Hubble’s successor, scheduled for launch in 2021.
