Cellular Logistics Founder invited to NASA’s Vascular Tissue Challenge Bioengineering Road-Mapping Summit

Cellular Logistics co-Founder Peiman Hematti, MD will be participating in NASA’s┬áVascular Tissue Challenge Bioengineering Road-Mapping Summit. NASA has invited a select group of international tissue engineering experts to participate in the Summit as part of the Vascular Tissue Challenge. According to the NASA website, the Vascular Tissue Challenge is: “is a $500,000 prize purse to be divided among the first three teams who can successfully create thick, human vascularized organ tissue in an in-vitro environment while maintaining metabolic functionality similar to their in vivo native cells throughout a 30-day survival period. NASA’s Centennial Challenges Program is sponsoring this prize to help advance research on human physiology, fundamental space biology, and medicine taking place both on the Earth and the ISS National Laboratory.” More information about the Challenge is available here:
