Investigating space microgravity effects on antibiotic resistance of E. coli

The E. coli AntiMicrobial Satellite (EcAMSat) mission will investigate space microgravity effect on the antibiotic resistance of E. coli, a bacterial pathogen responsible for urinary tract infection in humans and animals. EcAMSat is being developed through a partnership between NASA's Ames Research Center and the Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. A.C. Matin is the Stanford University Principal Investigator.
