From NASA's first successful nanosatellite technology demonstration of engineered protein expression on GeneSat to the current exponential growth of research and biomanufacturing in near earth orbit, a new frontier in microgravity-based research and manufacturing is being realized. An overview of the programs we have supported and the goals of their missions will be discussed.
