INTERNATIONAL CENTRE FOR ASTRONAUTICAL DEVELOPMENT
Institute of Research into Space Health and Astronaut Development
WHAT DO WE DO?
At ICAD, our aim is to contribute to knowledge in the field of Space medicine through international collaboration.
Our research goals are to understand the effects of varying space environments on the human body, ways to reproduce those environments in a terrestrial setting, and ways to mitigate the adverse effects on the human body.
WHY IT MATTERS
This work aims to help develop humankind into an interplanetary species.
In addition to the benefits for humans as a space-faring nation, there are also terrestrial benefits of space medicine research such as drug development, tissue generation, and spin off technology.
