Space health and life sciences strategic planning survey

The Space Health and Life Sciences Working Group of the National Committee of Space and Radio Science is seeking input from researchers studying in fields related to space health and life sciences. This survey and the strategic plan that it informs will provide a useful roadmap for harnessing Australia’s unique capabilities in biomedical science. The Space Health and Life Sciences Working Group of the National Committee of Space and Radio Science thanks you for your time in completing this survey.

Biomedical science is an enabler of human space flight supporting future human exploration missions.    The scientific spin-off benefits that arise from human spaceflight programs can provide substantial economic and public health benefits to Australia through improved health care, the development of novel technologies by private industry, and stimulation of the academic sector.   Space is a unique microgravity laboratory that can be used to develop novel biomedical technologies which can be commercialised purely for the benefit of human health.   This survey and the strategic plan that it informs will provide a useful roadmap for harnessing Australia’s unique capabilities in biomedical science towards achieving positive outcomes in these three domains.
