Michael BraukusHeadquarters, Washington, DC November 28, 1995(Phone: 202/358-1979)RELEASE: 95-210NASA AWARDS LIFE AND BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES RESEARCH GRANTSNASA has selected 46 proposals to receive two andthree-year grants for conducting ground-based or space-bornelife sciences research, totaling approximately $15 million.The purpose of these grants is to encourage science andtechnology research in the space life sciences. The grantsfunded through this annual NASA research announcementsupport a program of research that conducts experiments onEarth and in space to provide the basic understanding of therole of gravity in biological processes.Sponsored by NASA's Office of Life and MicrogravitySciences and Applications, Washington, DC, this researchoffers investigators the opportunity to take advantage of NASA's life and biomedical sciences research facilities toimprove the understanding of fundamental biologicalprocesses.NASA received 380 proposals in response to thisresearch announcement. The proposals were subjected to afully external peer-review through assembled panels made upof scientific and technical experts. The selected proposalsrepresent the following areas: space biology (16); spacephysiology and countermeasures (11); environmental health(2); space radiation health (3); space human factors (3);advanced life support (5); advanced extravehicular activitysystems (1); advanced technology development (2); dataanalysis (2) and interdisciplinary proposals (1).NASA's life and biomedical sciences grants provideinvestigators with the opportunity to study and characterizebasic biological mechanisms in ways not possible on Earth.By using access to space as a research tool, NASA-sponsoredresearch will advance fundamental knowledge of the way inwhich weightlessness, radiation, and other aspects of thespaceflight environment interact with biological processes.
These grants also seek to enhance the application of thisknowledge to procedures and technologies that enable humansto live, work and explore in space and to benefit the healthand well-being of people on Earth.-more--2-The scientists selected for NASA life sciences researchgrants are:Clarence P.
