TRISH Consortium

Content

By design, TRISH is a consortium of one of the nation’s elite medical colleges, Baylor College of Medicine, and two of the Nation’s premier technology institutions, Caltech and MIT. Leaders from the consortium institutions serve on the Board of Directors and are represented by institute Innovation Specialists. During alternating years, these institutions lead scientific workshops for the space health community, and TRISH supports research activities through seed grant programs. The Institute also works closely with NASA’s Human Research Program and the University of California San Francisco. These partnership helps bring forward new ideas forward.
