Biomedical researchers invited to design experiments for the International Space Station
Date:4/8/2009

SA program will encourage a new cadre of health researchers from a variety of disciplines to incorporate the space environment into their experiments, and will support them as they prepare their experiments for launch and analyze their data following a mission. "The diversity of NIH institutes and centers that agreed to participate in the initiative underscores the promise the International Space Station holds for human health," Katz continued. "We encourage all biomedical researchers in the United Statesparticularly those who are interested in molecular or cellular biology, biomaterials, or telemedicineto give serious thought to how International Space Station facilities might answer their most pressing questions about how to benefit life on Earth."

Former astronaut and Senator Harrison H. "Jack" Schmitt, who strongly supported the new partnership's development when he was chairman of the NASA Advisory Council, applauded the initiative: "The NIH and NASA have a long history of collaboration, and this announcement builds on that foundation to leverage the American public's investment in space-related health research and its implications for a much deeper understanding of human physiology."
