International Space Life Sciences Working Group

The International Space Life Sciences Working Group (ISLSWG) works to bring agencies together to provide more complete coordination of international development and use of spaceflight and special ground research facilities. It does this by identifying the agencies' mutual interests and programmatic compatibilities, enhancing communication, and encouraging a unified effort among and between the participating space life sciences communities around the world.
