NASA joins Cleveland Clinic's Global Healthcare Innovations Alliance

Through a new partnership, NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland will offer its aeronautics and spaceflight engineering expertise to Cleveland Clinic Innovations' Global Healthcare Innovations Alliance.

The Alliance, Cleveland Clinic's technology development and commercialization arm, will work with Glenn to identify, prioritize, develop and commercialize technologies that can be applied to healthcare.

Glenn joined the Alliance out of a desire to develop a medical technology portfolio using research from its aerospace missions, according to a Cleveland Clinic release. NASA has traditionally introduced industrial innovations to the commercial market, but has had limited resource to do so in the healthcare sector.

"NASA Glenn's research extends well beyond our aeronautics and spaceflight missions to the field of human health," said Glenn Director Jim Free. "By providing a pathway that will benefit the greater medical community, the Cleveland Clinic and the Alliance has opened a door to decades of NASA technological expertise that keeps humans safe on Earth and in space."
