TRISH: Funding human health research for space.
Partnering with NASA through a cooperative agreement, the Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) funds transformative human health technologies to predict, protect, and preserve astronaut physical and mental wellness during deep space exploration missions. We fund high-risk, high-reward, human health and performance solutions that can be adapted for use in space. Focused on early stage (proof of concept) and late stage (market-ready) research, TRISH stands apart from other funding organizations due to our high-risk tolerance, our flexible grant mechanisms, and our ability to connect researchers with NASA scientists and space analogs.

About TRISH:
Led by Baylor College of Medicine's Center for Space Medicine, TRISH is a consortium with the California Institute for Technology and the Massachusetts Institute for Technology. A virtual institute, TRISH maintains a small physical footprint in Houston’s Texas Medical Center. Leveraging partnerships with Caltech and MIT – each located in established hotbeds of health technology – TRISH connects the dots for game-changing space health countermeasures and technologies.
