KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Dr. Robert Thirsk was born and raised in western Canada. Bob received degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Calgary and from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He also holds a Doctorate of Medicine from McGill University and a Master of Business Administration from the MIT Sloan School of Management.  Bob has flown on two space missions as a member of the Canadian Space Agency’s astronaut corps. He first flew aboard the space shuttle Columbia in 1996 with six international crewmates as part of the Life and Microgravity Spacelab Mission. His second flight in 2009 was a six-month expedition aboard the International Space Station. Bob and his five international crewmates performed multidisciplinary research, robotic operations and maintenance of Station systems.  Bob is a strong promoter of an economy based upon exploration and innovation. He encourages youth to build their dreams upon a foundation of advanced skills and lifelong learning.

Healthcare in Deep Space:
advancing our nation’s leadership in autonomous care

Dr. Robert Thirsk, O.C., O.B.C.

Canada and other space-faring nations are now planning missions to explore the inner solar system. Expeditions to Mars and other deep space locations will be unlike past astronaut missions in low earth orbit. Dr. Robert Thirsk will describe the daunting nature of the deep space environment and the operational profile of these future missions.

In particular, the onboard healthcare delivery systems must evolve. Since real-time assistance by ground-based flight surgeons will be impossible, medical operations in deep space will feature autonomous, intelligent and patient-centric delivery systems. Astronauts will be trained to manage their own health and become empowered with their own health information. Onboard clinical decision-support systems, crew-worn sensors and artificial intelligence will support the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses.

Dr. Thirsk will then bring his thoughts down to Earth and consider whether the novel approaches to deep space healthcare could be adapted to serve the chronic care community as well as patients living in remote regions of our nation.
