About Us

Based in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School, the Consortium for Space Genetics embodies three missions: to protect human health in Space as well as on Earth, sustain our planet and the many life forms that it supports, and promote exploration so that we may better understand the vastness and potential of our universe. Integral to each of these goals is the training of future generations of researchers, inventors, healthcare workers, ethicists, and leaders and citizens in all walks of life who will help guide the transition of our world from a one-planet community into one that extends well beyond our current livable sphere. We welcome all to join us. These are exciting times.
