Can your medical product help avoid the call "Houston, we have a problem"?!?

The Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) announces eight new solicitation opportunities aimed at protecting and optimizing human health and performance during long duration space exploration missions.

Companies with existing medical products, or those still in development, may be awarded up to $250K to augment ongoing development efforts. TRISH’s funds can be used to advance the development and help make a product viable for use in a long duration space flight (e.g. by miniaturizing, reducing power and/or packaging, simplifying use, extending shelf-life, etc.) which will also make it a more robust and successful commercial product. This is a rapid response and unique opportunity to send your device to space. Apply no later than January 25, 2019 and notifications will be made by February 15th.
