Call For Proposals: @BCMSpaceHealth seeks proposals to develop a software-based, semi-autonomous platform to intake, manage and move biomedical data from spaceflight for research and clinical purposes. Proposals are due May 10, learn more here.
The Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) at Baylor College of Medicine, with consortium partners Massachusetts Institute of Technology and California Institute of Technology, announced today it is seeking proposals for a team to develop a robust platform that gathers and manages biomedical data from spaceflight participants for research and clinical purposes. The ability for a spaceflight participant’s biomedical data to accompany them during their spaceflight journey is critical to the goal of an autonomous medical system of the future. This capability will allow continuity across a mission or missions to document how the astronauts adapt to new and different extreme environments. This data will contribute to the evidence base and be used to predict if there is an increase in the probability of an undesirable performance or health outcome throughout the mission that should be mitigated.
