Ribas Cabezas, Laia

Institut de Ciències del Mar (ICM/CSIC), Spain. My research and work is at the crossroad of biology, aquaculture, fish physiology, reproduction & Immunology, genomics and epigenetics. I am interested in SONet because it creates multidisciplinary projects to achieve the development of human activities on other planets. In a new extraterrestrial scenario, the biology of novel ecosystems will be sustained under new environmental pressures that will modify the standard physiological aspects. Thus, for the sustainability of the human activities in the space and planetary bodies, it is required to evaluate the physiological alterations of the living organism in the extraterrestrial ecosystems. Here, the lasting effects of the exposition to novel environments will be studied at the cellular and molecular level of the exposed living organisms.
