Dr. Susan Bailey is a Professor and Radiation Cancer Biologist in the Department of Environmental & Radiological Health Sciences (ERHS) at Colorado State University. She is one of 10 investigators selected by NASA for the TWINS Study, an integrated effort to launch human space life science research into a new era of molecular or “omics” based studies.
