Since its creation in 1989, MEDES has been striving to maintain and help develop French competence in space medicine and physiology and to promote the application of space research in the field of health.

MEDES achieves this through its work in three main sectors: support in space medicine and physiology for space exploration, clinical research, and lastly e-health and support for epidemiological monitoring.

Proxima mission and MEDES

MEDES, the health subsidiary of CNES, supports the Alpha mission, the new space mission of Thomas Pesquet.
In particular, MEDES is working with the CNES/CADMOS centre to prepare and monitor the physiological experiments on board the ISS and is seconding some of its staff to the European Astronaut Centre (EAC) in Cologne to monitor the astronauts' training and medical support.
