Can your existing medical product or one in development help avoid the call "Houston, we have a problem"?!?

Two and a half years ago, the Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) was establsihed at the Baylor College of Medicine with the imperative purpose of funding disruptive science and technologies that could be translated into products that protect and optimize human health and performance during long-duration, deep space exploration missions, such as the mission to Mars.

Different from most grant organizations, TRISH is focused on translational research from proof of concept through commercialization. TRISH is focused on augmenting commercially driven projects by providing funding to make a product so that it can be used in a long duration space flight - while also providing commercial benefits.  Examples include miniturization, reduced power consumption, improved ease of use, reduced consumable packaging, shelf-life extension, etc.

Working closely with NASA’s Human Research Program, TRISH has already funded ground-breaking technologies designed to keep astronauts safe. Find out more about TRISH.

TRISH is now soliciting proposals for the rapid development of commercially available or soon to be viable products that address the following topics:
