NASA Ames Research Center • Senior Scientist Staff

Dr. Ann-Sofie Schreurs earned her B.Sc in life sciences in 2006 and her M.Sc in molecular biolog in 2008 at the University Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, France. For her Ph.D in Biochemistry, she went to the University of Sussex in England, and was funded by the Marie Curie Grant. After receiving her PhD in 2012, she obtained a NASA Post-Doctoral Program (NPP) fellowship at NASA Ames Research Center, where she worked on space-induced bone loss. As a next step in her career, she joined the Office of the Chief Scientist in September 2018 as a Senior Staff Scientist at NASA Ames Research Centre. Aside from her career, Ann-Sofie continues to work on her astronaut aspirations and skills needed such as scubadiving, skydiving and pilot training. In addition, she often volunteers to be a subject in experiments such as head down tilt bed rest, rotation chair testing and human centrifuge studies. She is also a PoSSUM alumni working towards being a scientist astronaut for their program. She has also been expanding her Isolation, Confined, and Extreme experiences: 2 weeks on “Mars” at the Mars Desert Research Station and a month aboard a ship at sea as a deckhand. Lastly, Ann-Sofie loves to travel (lived in 8 countries and travelled to over 40 countries) and learn languages, and is passionate about space exploration.
