2013's most compelling International Space Station results announced
Date:6/18/2014

Selecting only four compelling results to highlight from the research performed aboard the International Space Station (ISS) for the third annual ISS Research and Development conference was likely no easy task. Nevertheless, four were recognized June 17, 2014, as awardees in the category of Most Compelling Results from the space station in 2013. International Space Station Chief Scientist Julie Robinson, Ph.D., moderated the first plenary panel of the conference where the following winners shared their research:

Carl Carruthers, Jr., Ph.D., of NanoRacks LLC, in recognition of his work with protein crystal growth methods in microgravity.

Nabarun Chakraborty, M.S., M.B.A., U.S. Army Center for Environmental Health Research, in recognition of his findings on how microgravity alters host immune responses in vitro: multi -omics approach. The term "-omics" referring to collective technologies, such as genomics purposed to study the holistic health of biomolecules.

Jeffrey Hastings, MD, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, on behalf of principal investigators Ben Levine, MD, and Mike Bungo, MD., in recognition of integrated cardiovascular results.

Matthew Lynch, Ph.D., Procter and Gamble, in recognition of taking consumer product design to entirely new heights.

"These selected awardees are elevating space science to a whole new level, executing tests and demonstrations that show we can improve our understanding of space impacts on the human body and further our space exploration," said Allyson Thorn, NASA ISS Research Integration Office, who was part of the award selection committee.

This year's conference theme is discoveries, applications and opportunities. To be exact, discoveries in microgravity, space and Earth science, as well as engineering and education; applications benefitting Earth, enabling technology and forwarding exploration; and opportunities for use of this innovative laboratory.
