Happy Veteran's Day!

As we continue prepping for our January Space-X launch, we would like to take a moment and reflect on the men and women who have fought so courageously to protect our freedoms and lives as Americans.


Our research is rooted in bone regeneration and bone cell preservation and is important because it is applicable to our active and veteran military personnel who require large skeletal reconstruction due to being injured while serving their country. In our upcoming spaceflight we will examine bone healing in space and analyze current and novel bone healing drug treatments to see which works best.


We will continue to strive to provide much needed research and results in this area to provide better care to our military personnel. Veterans we thank you for your service and are appreciative of all of the sacrifices you and your families have made.
