Divya

Chander

Dr. Chander is a physician
and neuroscientist who trained
at Harvard, UCSD, UCSF, and the
Salk Institute.

Her postdoctoral training in optogenetic technology was conducted in the laboratories of Karl Deisseroth and Luis de Lecea at Stanford, where she used light-activated ion channels inserted in DNA to study sleep and consciousness switches in brains. In the operating room, she applies EEG technology to understand what human brains look like when they lose and regain consciousness, and has recently developed a precision medicine initiative aimed at understanding genetic variability in responses to anesthetic drugs.

Her goal is to understand neural mechanisms of consciousness and eventually utilize this knowledge to develop improved algorithms to create better brain monitors. She is currently working on applications of neural wearable devices to crossover consumer and medical markets.

Dr. Chander shares a parallel passion for space exploration. During her lifetime, it is her deepest desire to see a well-developed architecture to sustain human and robotic exploration of our solar system and beyond.

An alumnus of the International Space University, Dr. Chander has performed remote simulations of trauma rescues, anesthesia and surgery in Mars analogue settings with physicians in the US, France, and the Concordia base in Antarctica. Currently, she is involved with a consortium that is studying the effect of microgravity and radiation on the nervous system, cardiovascular system, cognition and sleep. Dr. Chander anticipates using many of the brain read-out technologies applied to her clinical practice to understanding nervous system development and plasticity within the space microgravity environment to better enable short and long-duration space missions.

Joana Cesar

Is a plastic artist; an
accentuated feature of her
ork is her obsession
with concealment.

In a piece of wall about 5 by 3 meters, in the studio she shares with her mother, Joan painted and covered the surface successively. Between one layer and another, she hid objects: pamphlets of the saint's mother brought from the street, bags she had made, pieces of lingerie. The wall gained two layers of layers and then was dismantled. "I discovered that I was more horny to cover than to paint," she explained.

"I wrote all over the wall, very loose, knowing that I would then have the wonderful feeling of covering it all up." The work in the studio, however, made her want to go to the street and show her texts. She was exposed in an incomprehensible and apocryphal way, using the secret alphabet she had conceived at puberty. At 12 years old, Joana fell in love with a friend of her older brother, from whom she hid the feeling. She assigned a symbol to each letter of the alphabet and began to write the secret language for two or three years, then lost interest and abandoned the code. health and happiness
