Implant Could End Jet Lag, Food Poisoning

This week, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) made an incredible announcement that could, at first, improve the operational readiness of soldiers but eventually improve the lives of any person suffering jet lag or food poisoning.

In April 2020, DARPA introduced the ADvanced Acclimation and Protection Tool for Environmental Readiness program.

The ADAPTER program aims to create new systems that give warfighters control over their bodies. Like any human, soldiers suffer from jet lag and food poisoning, making them less effective during critical missions. The plan is to create engineered cells and biochemicals integrated into an internal, bioelectronics carrier device that soldiers can tap into as needed. If a soldier's sleep schedule is off, he/she can activate therapies that either eliminate the illness or regulate disrupted circadian rhythms.
