CALM's eOSTEO payload plans to take residence on the International Space Station

NIH announces NIH/NIAMS BioMED-ISS grant award, and transition to ISS-mission phase.  CALM Technologies Inc., as subcontractor and implementation partner to Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, has been notified of approval of the program transition to UH3.  With the successful completion of the scientific milestones of UH2 by Dr. Paola Pajevic-Divieti and her team, NIH has committed to fund the necessary hardware development to support the scientific objectives on the International Space Station. 

The UH3 phase of the program represents the design and implementation of the necessary technical upgrades to the eOSTEO hardware, in preparation for flight to the ISS in 2014/2015.  The eOSTEO hardware, developed by CALM Technologies through funding by the Canadian Space Agency, will be loaned to NASA for the duration of the program, and may provide additional opportunities to Canadian and International partners in the future.

With a rich history of performing Life Science experiments in space, the eOSTEO family of payloads will now add yet another venue to its’ repertoire.  With history flying on the shuttle, the FOTON capsule, and now ISS (via SpaceX’s Dragon capsule), this milestone hopes to serve as important pre-cursor to future developments for Life Sciences in space.
