Animal Research - STS / ISS


Commercial Biomedical Test Module-3 (CBTM-3) utilizes a validated mouse model to assess the effects of microgravity on various physiological processes and systems. It will also assess the effectiveness of different therapeutics designed to reduce the deleterious effects of microgravity on living organisms. CBTM-3 supports a large tissue sharing program whereby several additional investigations are carried out in addition to the primary science; these investigations assess the effects of microgravity on the skeletal, cardiovascular, immune systems, liver, kidney and other physiological systems

  Mouse Immunology-1

Mouse Immunology-2

Mouse Immunology-2, using the experimental model, will investigate the effects of microgravity on immune function. In microgravity, astronauts experience changes in immune function. These
studies will help determine the biological and/or biomedical significance of spaceflight induced changes in immune responses
