The Study Team supports internal and external scientists as well as research groups in planning and coordinating physiological studies and projects at the Institute of Aerospace Medicine. Our main focus lies on complex, highly standardized in-patient studies.
The Study Team is able to perform the following tasks:
The Study Team can either take over individual tasks or the complete management process of a study.
The Team has acquired a long experience in a broad range of studies: isolation studies, head-down-tilt bed-rest studies (lasting several weeks) as well as clinical studies.
The Study Team also gives support to the planning and realization of ambulant studies, for example tests with a Short Arm Human Centrifuge to simulate “artificial gravity”. In this field the Team has several years of experience, from internal studies as well as from ESA Ground Based Facility studies and the National Centrifuge Program of DLR Space Administration.
All studies are conducted under very high standards, with all relevant laws and regulations being adhered to and providing all medical care and medical monitoring which is required.
Depending on the scientific question, the research facilities of the Institute of Aerospace Medicine can be used, either in the Institute itself or in the new research facility :envihab. For all studies and projects within the Institute, the overall scheduling and assignment of the research facilities is organized by the Study Team.
