DR. JOHN JURIST
returns for the first of several Space Show programs exploring the use of bisphosphonate for mitigating bone loss on space missions. Check The Space Show blog on Tuesday before the program as Dr. Jurist has provided me with an important background document I will upload in advance of our discussion.
Dr. Jurist was simultaneously a physicist and a medical researcher before becoming involved in business. He has degrees in biophysics and nuclear medicine earned while he was at the UCLA School of Medicine. Dr. Jurist has held faculty positions at the University of Wisconsin (Madison) in the Medical School’s Division of Orthopedic Surgery and in the Space Science and Engineering Center. In the former, he studied human factors in space flight during Apollo and what was then called Apollo Applications and organized a metabolic bone disease laboratory for translational research. In the latter during the early 1970s, he was team leader of the group that transmitted the first medical imaging over communications satellite links in a precursor to telemedicine. In the business arena, he created and ran a biomedical engineering consulting firm, was president of a highly successful outpatient surgical center, and founded a nonprofit medical research institute and ran it for four years — it now has an eight figure annual research budget. Dr. Jurist is a proven expert on running a business and evaluating a business plan. He is now applying his experience to the developing NewSpace industry as an early investor in several small NewSpace corporations, supported R&D in others with corporate grants, and has partly funded academic propulsion and robotics research groups at multiple universities. Among other professional organizations, he is currently a Life Member of the International Association of Military Flight Surgeon Pilots, an Associate Fellow of the Aerospace Medical Association, an Emeritus member of the Orthopaedic Research Society, and a Fellow of the Gerontological Society. His teaching and research activities revolve around his present positions of Adjunct Professor of Space Studies in the Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences at UND and Adjunct Professor of Biophysics and Aviation at Rocky Mountain College.
