Assessment of zero-gravity impact on the structural and functional regeneration of the damaged organs and tissues of the animals involved in the experiment.
Information PendingEarth Applications
Planaria incubators, ART Pouch.Operational Protocols
Divide animals and record regeneration results.
Information about the regeneration of the damaged organs and tissues obtained during conduct of model experiments on the animals exposed to zero-gravity conditions during a long time will prove to be helpful for developing the measures for flight medical support.
