The NASA funded Translational Research Institute for Space Health would like to meet your startup!
The Translational Research Institute for Space Health has non-dilutive funding for health startups that can help astronauts be healthy. Got an awesome innovation? Apply before February 9, 2018.
We will be selecting startups to work with and a few to join us on stage at SXSW Interactive on March 10 in Austin, Texas.
Here’s some of what we are looking for:
- Low footprint, low consumables, health and wellness diagnostic devices (wearables and nonwearables) for behavior, mental agility, and medical wellness. Specifically, immune status, heart health, fitness, nutritional status, stress, vision, mood, and infections.
- Algorithms to predict behavior and health adverse events (based on wearables data)
- What would you carry in a medical emergency kit to Mars?
The Institute has a single overarching mission: Lead a national effort in translating cutting-edge emerging terrestrial research into applied space flight human risk mitigation strategies for exploration missions. Simply put, we seek and fund emerging scientific and biomedical advances, radically disruptive technologies, and new engineering capabilities and facilities that bridge earth and space health medicine.
