MIRA, or “miniaturized in vivo robotic assistant,” was awarded her $100,000 prize to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln under the Competitive Research Stimulus Program (EPSCoR) established by the U.S. Department of Energy. Fly to the International Space Station.

But for now, on the 2024 test mission, MIRA will operate in a microwave-sized experimental cabinet aboard her ISS in low-Earth orbit.

MIRA is developed by Virtual Incision. Virtual Incision is a startup co-founded by Farritor that has attracted over $100 million in venture capital investment since its inception in 2006.
