The Federation is a pilot experiment for building collaboration in space. This video features the exploration of the technology and cultural challenges along with benefits that have arisen in the first Federation project where five labs have chosen to share their data, models, and algorithms on three projects related to cancer and aging."

Application of engineering principles and equipment to biology and medicine. It includes the development and fabrication of life-support systems for underwater and space exploration, devices for medical treatment (seedialysis, prosthesis), and instruments for monitoring biological processes. Development has been particularly rapid in the area of artificial organs, which culminated in the implantation of an artificial heart into a human being in 1982. Bioengineers also develop equipment that enables humans to maintain body functions in hostile environments, such as the space suits worn by astronauts during extravehicular maneuvers.
