Space Health Innovation Challenge
Friday, February 7, 2014 at 4:00 PM - Sunday, February 9, 2014 at 7:00 PM (CST)
The Johnson Space Center (JSC) is providing challenges to Health 2.0, Enventure, and other partner innovation groups for the Space Health Innovation Challenge event to be held at BioScience Research Collaborative at Rice University on February 7th - 9th. It is an opportunity for the national health innovation community to join with local Houston innovation groups to provide new perspectives on problems faced by JSC that will keep astronauts healthy while living in space or traveling in NASA’s Orion spacecraft during deep space missions.
Projects encompass challenges in three general topic areas: data visualization, predictive analysis, and devices. Each topic calls for a diverse set of expertise and has direct applications to improving modern medicine and healthcare in space & on Earth. Regardless of your career background or experience level, there will be projects to pique your interest and meaningful opportunities for learning and contributing to challenges.
The event will feature a special keynote talk by Jeffrey R. Davis, MD, Director, Space Life Sciences, NASA Johnson Space Center.
All meals, snacks, and drinks for the weekend will be provided. For more information, see MissionToMarsHealth.com
