TRISH: Exploring Health's New Frontiers

TRISH: Exploring Health's New Frontiers

We are a lean, virtual institute empowered by the NASA Human Research Program to solve the challenges of human deep space exploration.

We find and fund disruptive, breakthrough approaches that reduce risks to human health and performance. TRISH supports both high-risk early-stage research as well as pre-seed and seed-stage health technologies that can be modified for use by astronauts on the way to Mars.

Led by Baylor College of Medicine's Center for Space Medicine, our consortium leverages partnerships with Caltech and MIT.

TRISH connects the dots for game-changing space health countermeasures and technologies, and is exploring health's new frontiers.
