Director's Message

Dr. Jeffery Sutton at CSM's location, which overlooks Rice University Stadium where President John F. Kennedy delivered his historic "To the Moon" speech Sept. 12, 1962.

The Center for Space Medicine provides an academic home to advance science, technology, medicine and education to benefit human health in space and on Earth. Through interdisciplinary programs and collaborations, CSM is charting new research frontiers at the interface of medicine and engineering. It is also inspiring and training the next generation of physicians, scientists and leaders.

We invite you to explore the many ways you may join us in this adventure.
