    Astrogenetix Space projects developing

    This space-based research provides evidence that the International Space Station as a National
    Laboratory is a valuable resource that can be utilized for the benefit of Earth. Discovery of
    therapeutic targets for MRSA and Salmonella infections are examples of efforts to use the novel
    microgravity environment to develop new pharmaceutical agents, and as the station nears
    completion, there will be an increase in such opportunities to utilize the International Space Station
    National Laboratory as a platform for drug discovery. Overall, these results represent just a fraction
    of the possibilities of future microgravity discoveries. Scientists participating in these studies plan
    to fly a continuing series of experiments to the space station, giving them streamlined access that
    will help to accelerate progress for several different lifesaving vaccines.
