SCIENCE HARDWARE USED:
- Embrion Kit
- Thermally controlled container Acquarius
to accommodate Embrion Kit
Research into capability of mesenchymal truncal
cells from bone marrow to perform their inherent functions
under different cultivation conditions during space
Conduct of truncal cells cultivation process in thermally
controlled container Acquarius and return of the experiment
results to the ground.
Embrion Kit with cells subjected to cultivation.
- Generation of experimental data on in-flight and
post-flight cell viability, activity.
- Identification of functional disturbance of locomotive
system in flight and providing recommendations to
reduce the risk of developing these complications
after return of the cosmonauts to ground.
- Assessment of applicability of the truncal cells
onboard a manned spacecraft for rehabilitative therapy
of the injured organs during a long-duration space
