|August 14, 2013 ||NSBRI-RFA-13-02: The National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) is soliciting for program proposals to establish a Center for Space Radiation Research (CSRR). The CSRR will build upon important discoveries made by the NSBRI Center of Acute Radiation Research and extend them by characterizing and quantifying the effects of space radiation on living systems. Operating in close partnership with NASA's Human Research Program, the CSRR will be tasked with researching the acute effects of space radiation, as well as the longer term, so-called "degenerative" effects of space radiation on the cardiovascular and circulatory systems. Accordingly, the CSRR will work to reduce the radiation related health risks that will be encountered by astronaut crews during future missions to an asteroid, the Moon or Mars. This research announcement entitled "Center for Space Radiation Research" was released by NSBRI on August 14, 2013. |
|July 30, 2013 ||NNJ13ZSA002N: The National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) is soliciting for ground-based, analog definition and flight definition research proposals to develop safe and effective countermeasures and technologies that will reduce the significant biomedical risks associated with human space travel.
These discoveries will not only enable safe and productive human spaceflight, but will also have the potential to improve life on Earth. The Human Exploration Research Opportunities (HERO) announcement entitled "Research and Technology Development to Support Crew Health and Performance in Space Exploration Missions" was released jointly with NASA's Human Research Program on July 30, 2013. |
