LIFE SCIENCESINDUSTRY ACCELERATOR

MEDES and FranceBiotech present the Life Sciences Industry Accelerator. Its aim is to offer new opportunities for industrial research by facilitating access to commercial space-based platforms in Low Earth Orbit.

FOCUS AREAS

We help you to make use of the space environment to accelerate research and development in pharmaceuticals and in particular biomanufacturing.

 

Industries from the life sciences and cosmetic sectors can benefit from the microgravity environment to foster their  development of technologies related to biomanufacturing.

BENEFITS OF MICROGRAVITY FOR YOUR R&D

At reduced levels of gravity, the biological, chemical and physical processes change.

The Space environment allows to re-discover materials and properties, improve understanding of processes and interaction of substances, and to create new and more accurate data models.

You can use these insights to develop new materials and processes for products that can be used on Earth. Find out concrete examples on the life sciences page.
