CASIS Pretends NASA Doesn't Exist While NASA Pays Their Rent

CASIS and NCATS Collaborate to Promote Human Physiology Research on the International Space Station, CASIS
Keith’s note: Senior managers and PR people at CASIS have been heard to complain that they wish NASA would do more to promote them. So what does CASIS do to encourage more interaction with NASA? Why, they ignore NASA, of course. This press release is about research aboard the ISS that NASA paid billions to build and operate. NASA pays 99.97% or more of CASIS’ budget every year. So everything that CASIS does is paid for with NASA money. Yet, if you read this press release, you will see that the word “NASA” is not even mentioned. This may sound trivial but CASIS is constantly taking credit for things without acknowledging NASA’s role. And then they whine when NASA doesn’t show them enough love. If the management of CASIS had half a brain they’d be trying to be NASA’s best friend. Instead, all they do is throw them shade.
