National Space Biomedical Research Institute

Established in 1997, the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) is a unique non-profit research consortium in partnership with NASA and over 70 other agencies, universities, and institutions working on countermeasures to the health-related problems and physical and psychological challenges men and women will face on long-duration missions. NSBRI is located in the Consolidated Research Facility located in the Bioscience Research Collaborative at Rice University. Research also addresses key technologies required to enable and enhance exploration. In particular, NSBRI scientists and physicians are developing technologies to provide medical monitoring, diagnosis and treatment in the extreme environments that will be faced during exploration missions.
