Just a few short days ago, an International Space Station crew returned safely to Earth after spending 196 days in space. Though the astronauts onboard spent a considerable amount of time conducting experiments, scientists closer to home have also been exploring the potential of the space environment for future innovation. Below you'll find two articles from our latest cover feature focusing on the opportunities that await the astropharmacy field.

Be sure to check out our other articles too, which delve into the responsibilities of leadership and the importance of understanding the risks and benefits of CRISPR genome editing studies. Until next time, Maryam Mahdi, Associate Editor.
