Dr. Serena M. Auñón-Chancellor began working with NASA as a Flight Surgeon in 2006.

During her NASA career, Dr. Auñón-Chancellor spent more than nine months in Russia supporting medical operations for International Space Station crew members in Star City. She also served as Deputy Crew Surgeon for STS-127 and is board certified in both Internal and Aerospace Medicine.

She was selected in July 2009 as one of 14 members of the 20th NASA astronaut class. She graduated in November 2011 from Astronaut Candidate Training, which included scientific and technical briefings, intensive instruction in space station systems, spacewalks, robotics, physiological training, T-38 flight training and water and wilderness survival training. She spent two months in Antarctica from 2010 to 2011 searching for meteorites as part of the ANSMET expedition. She subsequently served as an Aquanaut aboard the Aquarius underwater laboratory during the NEEMO 20 undersea exploration mission. Currently, Auñón-Chancellor spends most of her time handling medical issues for both the International Space Station Operations branch and Commercial Crew Branch. She is also certified as an International Space Station CAPCOM and served as the lead Capcom for the SpaceX-4 and SpaceX-8 cargo resupply missions.

The crew for Expedition 56/57 (June 6 through Dec. 19, 2018) launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome aboard the Soyuz spacecraft. Auñón-Chancellor, who served as Flight Engineer, was joined by EAS Astronaut Alexander Gerst, as well as Russian Cosmonaut Sergey Prokopyev. The Expedition 57 crew contributed to hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science aboard the International Space Station. Investigations were led into new cancer treatment methods and algae growth in space.
