A medical research, looking into the question whether weightlessness can stop cancer from growing, is currently prepared for flying around 2022 to the Chinese Space Station (CSS). The cancer research project, called "Tumours in Space", is headed by Canadian researcher Tricia L. Larose, based at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). "Tumours in Space" is one of nine research projects selected by the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the China Manned Space Agency (CMSA) under their programme to provide scientists from all over the world with the opportunity to fly experiments on the CSS. It is also the only one among the 9 selected that is headed by a woman.
