Mayo Clinic’s groundbreaking research in cellular aging and cardiac adaptation is headed to space on the first-ever all-civilian private spaceflight to the International Space Station.   

Mayo Clinic’s logo will be displayed on a patch affixed to the sleeve of astronaut Larry Connor’s spacesuit. Larry is one of four civilians from around the world participating in the Axiom Space mission, scheduled to launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, in April. While at the ISS, each astronaut will work with organizations from back home on research projects.  

Larry, who is recognized as a Philanthropic Partner, worked with Mayo researchers to identify important research projects in the fields of aging and regenerative medicine to conduct in the microgravity environment of space.  

Placing Mayo Clinic's logo on Larry's spacesuit is an opportunity to showcase leading-edge research that advances health care in the organization's effort to accomplish its ultimate goal — addressing the unmet needs of patients.
