Centre for Space Medicine

Welcome to the University College London (UCL) MSSL Centre for Space Medicine (CSM) web-site. The Centre brings together MSSL's technological and analytical capabilities, and general Space awareness with UCL's strengths in biomedicine.

Vision and Scope

The CSM focuses on both the facilitation of human space exploration and the improvement of quality of life on Earth through open innovation and cross-disciplinary application of techniques and technology. The Centre is inherently interdisciplinary in nature involving BioMedical, Cognitive / Robotics Engineering, Information Technology and Space Sciences domains.

Our objectives

Space-Medicine-Technology-Innovation
  • Use Space as a laboratory to study, to expand our understanding of the human condition and to develop techniques and technologies to facilitate exploration missions and healthcare on Earth
  • Develop sustainable cross-disciplinary education programmes in space life, medical and engineering sciences, with additional focus on applied technology through topics of cognitive engineering, automation design, human factors and human computer/robot interaction in healthcare, exploration and operation in extreme and isolated environments.
  • Investigate and instigate biomedical open innovation projects through cross-disciplinary efforts between space, medical and engineering science research teams.
  • Spin-out space techniques and technologies developed within UCL into the health sector and public sector to improve the quality of everyday life.
  • Create on-going collaborative initiatives, of a public and school outreach.
  • Establish new and strengthen existing industrial and academic partnerships with US, Europe, Russia and within the UK.
