Each year, the International Space Station (ISS) Research and Development (R&D) Conference, held in coordination with the ISS U.S. National Laboratory, NASA, and the American Astronautical Society, highlights individuals who have pushed the boundaries of space-based research through the presentation of research awards. This week, we are spotlighting awardees in the category of “innovation,” honoring individuals who have leveraged the ISS to pioneer a new frontier in space-based science. Today’s spotlight is on Colleen King of NASA, for innovation in finance.
Find out about new research opportunities onboard the ISS National Laboratory, including recent Requests for Proposals in the areas of Advanced Materials and Industrial Biomedicine. See how you can leverage the unique space environment to advance your research and development.
