Through our unique Vaccine Processing Platform, we are focused on discovering new medicines in space that will benefit lives on Earth. Our primary mission is to discover therapeutically relevant and commercially viable biomarkers in the microgravity environment of space.
A biomarker is defined simply as a characteristic or "marker" of the state of a biological system or a biological process. These markers can be in the form of DNA, RNA, proteins, metabolites or any other measurable biologic material.
Through this method, we expect to shorten the drug development timeframe and guide relevant therapeutics agents (or diagnostics) into the clinical trial process more quickly and cost-effectively.
