One of the props in the Sci-Fi series “Star Trek” was Dr. McCoy’s medical diagnostic tool. Now, researchers at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix are partnering with Space Tango, a private aerospace company, to develop an easy way to test astronauts’ health in space. Led by Director and Professor Frederic Zenhausern of the UA Center for Applied NanoBioscience and Medicine, the effort has received three independent NASA grants. The funding will allow researchers to develop a miniature syringe-like diagnostic tool that can detect bio-agents and hundreds of biomarkers in blood or saliva – and test it in space. We hear more about the tool from professor Zenhausern.
