For the sustainable development of Space, The Outer Space Institute is a research hub for addressing these questions by an interdisciplinary team of space subject matter experts. SpaRTAN Physics Laboratory director, Jeff Chancellor, is Fellow of the Outer Space Institute.
Atlantis delivers full-spectrum AI-enabled radiation models and shielding profiles to rapidly design, develop and apply more affordable, commercially available radiation tolerant space electronics for increased computational processing/storage at the edge. Using our commercial technology, Phalanx AI, we aim to drive U.S. spaceflight at the speed of COTS.
The Micro-11 flight experiment will help determine the effect of space flight on sperm capacitation and signal transduction changes compared to parallel samples on the ground. SpaRTAN lab is collaborating with PI Joseph Tash, Ph.D. the University of Kansas Medical Center by providing dosimetry analyses of the samples flown on ISS during Expedition 56. The LEONIDIS team is providing support with analysis of the radiation data collected during the experiment onboard the International Space Station.
Dr. Aunon-Chancellor is an Astronaut and Associate Professor of Internal Medicine at the LSU School of Medicine. She is board certified in Internal and Aerospace Medicine, she recently served as Flight Engineer on the International Space Station for Expeditions 56 and 57.
Marjan Boerma is Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Her research focuses on cancer survivorship issues, particularly radiation-induced heart disease, risks of cardiovascular disease from exposure to radiation during space travel, and development of medical countermeasures against nuclear accidents or terrorism.
