Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos)
ISS Expedition Duration
April 2005 - October 2008
Previous ISS Missions
Assessment of zero-gravity impact on the structural and functional regeneration of the damaged organs and tissues of the animals involved in the experiment.
Planaria incubators, ART Pouch.
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.
