His recent efforts at UCSD have been focused on the development, application and operations of space related projects that involves an alliance between industry, university, and government partners. These projects range from natural hazards and remote sensing using suborbital & orbital vehicles to shuttle and the International Space Station (ISS). Since 2005 to the present, Dr. Wiskerchen has devoted considerable effort in developing private/public partnerships involving both space-related research and commercial programs on the International Space Station. From 2005 through 2009, he facilitated a series of workshops at NASA Ames Research Park that involved utilization of the ISS for research, commercial ventures, and education. In 2008-2009, he facilitated the formation of the Biotechnology Space Research Alliance (BSRA), a private/public partnership, to stimulate participation in the International Space Station National Laboratory (ISSNL) to validate its capabilities as a unique and cost effective research environment for breakthrough biomedical and biotechnology discoveries. He also served as a consultant to the ISSNL Education Concept Development Task Force that developed a strategy for using the ISS as an educational asset.
