NASA Research on Microencapsulated Cancer Treatment Delivery

We’ve previously reported on the NASA Microencapsulation Electrostatic Processing System-II experiment (MEPS-II) conducted on the International Space Station. Bringing microencapsulation to space not only provides unique opportunities for research in cancer treatment deliveries, but also such a high-profile application brings much attention to microencapsulation as a process. This new page published by NASA give a […]

Microencapsulated Drugs Developed in Outer Space

In an article on the research that takes place on the International Space Station, a NASA scientist discusses a patented drug microencapsulation system that was developed aboard the Space Station. Their targeted microcapsule research was conducted on prostate cancer in mice. From the article: “One challenge we have is that it takes time for the […]
