  • 500-backed biotech company Prenetics is taking healthcare innovations into space — and back! They have committed to a strategic investment in Metavisionaries, a space and frontier technology company, and a pioneering five-year research agreement.
  • Under the agreement, a Space Innovation Lab will also be established within the UAE Space Agency. The inaugural Prenetics research cube is scheduled to on-board the SpaceX to the International Space Station in Q4 2024.
  • The first project Prenetics will undertake is with the Botnar Institute for Musculoskeletal Sciences at the University of Oxford. The research will look into cellular solutions that promote rejuvenation and vitality to combat the phenomenon of accelerated aging in space due to its zero-gravity environment. The potential of this research could lead to new advances in healthcare, enhancing cellular health and longevity for all ages on Earth.
  • Dr. James L. Green, former Chief Scientist of NASA and Dr. Tara Ruttley, former Associate Chief Scientist of NASA joined Prenetics Scientific Advisory Board
  • Danny Yeung, CEO of Prenetics shared, “Our collaboration with Metavisionaries underscores our dedication to innovation and our conviction in the transformative potential of space exploration to deliver ground-breaking health advancements on Earth.”
