For the first time ever, world-class microgravity research is possible for small companies, research institutions, Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and others interested in tapping into the unique space environment.  The ISS is designated as a U.S. National Laboratory by Congress, and the Center for Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), manages this commercial capability, with a focus on enabling a new era of space research to improve life on Earth.  CASIS is charged with promoting and brokering a diverse range of research, enabling a new era of space research to improve life on Earth.

Since 2011, CASIS has selected more than 200 ISS research projects, ranging from developing new drug therapies to monitoring tropical cyclones, improving equipment for first-responders, and producing unique fiber-optics materials in space.  Working together with NASA, CASIS aims to advance the nation's leadership in commercial space, pursue groundbreaking science not possible on Earth, and leverage the space station to inspire the next generation.

Come join us to learn about CASIS and how they're working with companies to achieve their goals, as well as to commercialize the ISS.
