Pre-ASGSR Meeting Workshop
NASA-NIH Workshop on Collaborative Biomedical Research for Earth and Space Benefit
8:00 am to 5:30 pm
Bethesda North Marriott and Conference Center
5701 Marinelli Road, Rockville, MD
NASA and the NIH invite you to participate in a free one-day workshop on collaborative biomedical research for Earth and space benefit. Both NASA and the NIH are charged with conducting biomedical research for the benefit of humanity, and each has unique resources and capabilities to accomplish this mission. The ISS National Lab is one example of a national resource with unique capabilities to serve the research needs for both NASA and the NIH. For this one-day workshop, NASA and the NIH are bringing together their respective science communities to solicit comments and ideas for identifying collaborative research concepts and spark innovation that could lead to scientific advancements for the nation.
The workshop agenda will focus on spaceflight research needs, challenges, and capabilities associated with developing collaborative concepts that produce benefits for both life on Earth and space exploration. Dr. Michael Roberts, Deputy Chief Scientist for CASIS, will present “ISS National Lab and Development of Joint Projects,” at 9:30 AM on October 30.
This pre-ASGSR workshop has no cost and is open to anyone. Attendance is limited to 120 attendees and registration closes on Oct. 20. This workshop registration does not include registration for the 2018 ASGSR Annual Meeting (to register for the ASGSR Annual Meeting, visit ASGSR.org).

American Society for Gravitational and Space Research (ASGSR)
The American Society for Gravitational and Space Research (ASGSR) is a nonprofit 501 C(6) founded in 1984 to foster and promote research, education, and professional development in the multidisciplinary fields of gravitational research. ASGSR brings together a diverse group of scientists and engineers to encourage an exchange of ideas bridging discovery and invention through biological and physical science research and technology in space and gravitational sciences. The members represent academia, government, and industry interests bonded by a common issue—how living organisms and physical systems respond to gravity.
