    New NIH-CASIS Funding Opportunity: Coordinated Microphysiological Systems Program for Translational Research in Space

    Date: December 07, 2017

    The purpose of this funding opportunity is to promote the development of in vitro microphysiological systems in modeling human diseases and conditions that mimic the pathology in major organs and tissues in the human body, when exposed to the extreme environments of space, and the use of these models at the International Space Station-U.S. National Laboratory  (ISS-NL) to facilitate the assessment of biomarkers, bioavailability, efficacy, and toxicity of therapeutic agents prior to entry into clinical trials. The deadline for applications is January 16, 2018. Click here for full application and further information.
