NASA Research Announcement Issued (includes Microbiology topics)

A National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Research Announcement (NRA), entitled, "Research and Technology Development to Support Crew Health and Performance in Space Exploration Missions" (NRA NNJ10ZSA003N), has been released and is available through the NASA Research Opportunities homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and then linking through the menu listings "Solicitations" to "Open Solicitations." On the Open Solicitations page, select NNJ10ZSA003N from the list of Solicitations.

This NRA jointly solicits ground-based, bed rest definition and flight definition proposals for the NASA Human Research Program (HRP) and the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI).

Proposals are solicited by NASA in the areas of Host-Microbe Interactions, Crew Microbiome, Workload Measures, Habitability Concept Tools, Psychosocial Aspects of Food Acceptability, Neurocognitive Performance, Team Autonomy, Behavioral Health and Performance ISS Utilization, Muscle: Gender and Hydration, Muscle: In-flight Changes, Nutrition/Pharmaceuticals and Exercise, Innate Immunity, Pharmacology: Space Motion Sickness, Bone: Fracture Healing, and EVA Physiology: Suit Injury Countermeasures.

Proposals are solicited by NSBRI in the areas of Cardiovascular Alterations, Human Factors and Performance, Musculoskeletal Alterations, Neurobehavioral and Psychosocial Factors, Sensorimotor Adaptation, and Smart Medical Systems and Technology.

Proposals responding to the NASA emphases and NSBRI emphases must be submitted separately, and will result in separate evaluations and awards. Step-1 proposals are due on September 2, 2010, and invited Step-2 proposals are due on December 1, 2010. Participation is open to all categories of organizations, including educational institutions, industry, nonprofit organizations, NASA centers, and other Government agencies.

Proposals solicited through this NRA will use a two-step proposal process. Only Step-1 proposers determined to be relevant with respect to the solicited research of this NRA will be invited to submit full Step-2 proposals. Proposals must be submitted electronically. Step-1 proposals to NASA may be submitted via the NASA Proposal data system NSPIRES (http://nspires.nasaprs.com) or via Grants.gov (http://www.grants.gov). Invited Step-2 proposals to NASA must be submitted via NSPIRES. Both Step-1 and Step-2 proposals to NSBRI must be submitted via NSPIRES.
