At a Stanford Medicine event Sept. 29, audience members spoke with Kate Rubins, who was aboard the International Space Station.

Relman asked, “Looking back at graduate school, is there something you think helped prepare you for what you are doing now?”

Rubins replied, “Getting the chance to be at Stanford, to do work there, to train under you and Pat [Brown, MD, PhD, professor emeritus of biochemistry] and all of the associated mentors, friends and colleagues there, taught me to be a scientist. I put this to use every day.”
