The Exomedicine Institute is a private, collaborative R&D enterprise focused on the development and application of new knowledge, technologies and possibilities that emerge from a deeper understanding of the influences of microgravity on the dynamics of living systems, and the rigorous application of these insights to advance medical solutions. Using contemporary best practices, innovative multidisciplinary research and discovery tools to go beyond current limitations and assumptions the Institute seeks to harness the unique environment of space and microgravity in the design of novel and transformational strategies for the improvement of everyday life for all people.
Space is a unique environment and most researchers do not have the specialized expertise or time to learn how to conduct successful research in microgravity. Exomedicine Institute takes a fast-paced interdisciplinary approach to design, development, flight qualification, launch analysis and completion of orbital experiments. Microtechnologies open the door for small and inexpensive research platforms. With funding, the Institute will assemble ten research teams to identify exomedicine investigations in oncology, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, infectious diseases, immunology/autoimmune, neurology, tissue regeneration, cardiology and hematology, stem cell, and aging.
