Amber M. Paul, is an Assistant Professor of Aerospace Physiology and Embry-Riddle Wessel Fellow at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Dr. Paul received her BSc in Immunology from the University of Alberta, Canada and Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from the University of Southern Mississippi. She completed her postdoctoral training at NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) as a Universities Space Research Association (USRA) fellow and was part of the science team that flew the Multi-Use Variable Gravity Platform, MVP-Techshot (MVP-FLY-01) SpaceX-14 mission. Dr. Paul is currently a co-Investigator on a NASA's Human Research Program funded grant and is affiliated with NASA ARC as a Visiting Scholar through Blue Marble Space Institute of Sciences (BMSIS). She is a member of the American Astronautical Society, Radiation Research Society, NASA GeneLab Animal and Educational working groups, American Society for Gravitational and Space Research (ASGSR), and American Association of Immunologists. She is also a Canadian Space Ambassador for the Canadian Space Agency. She is currently co-leading the Omics Lab for Health and Human Performance at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Dr. Paul's research focuses on immunity and neuroendocrine crosstalk in extreme environmental conditions and is interested in how physiological stress in both acute and chronic settings impacts immunity and nervous system function. Her goal is to identify signaling pathways involved and develop countermeasures that can circumvent these impacts.
