Exploration Medical Technologies

As NASA prepares to extend human exploration beyond low Earth orbit, the human research program is working to develop medical technologies for in-flight diagnosis and treatment.  Identifying and testing medical care and crew health maintenance technologies is vital to providing capabilities for astronauts on long duration exploration missions.

The mission of the Exploration Medical Capability (ExMC) element within the Human Research Program is to advance medical system design and risk-informed decision making for exploration beyond low Earth orbit and to promote human health and performance in space.
