Human Research Program - Research Announcements
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) periodically solicits proposals for specific NASA Research Announcements (NRA). The Human Research Program (HRP) and the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) support NASA’s advancement into space by investigating and mitigating the highest risks to astronaut health and performance in exploration missions. The goal of the HRP is to provide human health & performance countermeasures, knowledge, technologies, and tools to enable safe, reliable, and productive human space exploration. Similarly, the goal of the NSBRI is to ensure safe and productive human space flight. The scope of these goals includes both the successful completion of exploration missions and the preservation of astronaut health over the life of the astronaut.

Human Research Roadmap
A web-based version of the Integrated Research Plan (IRP) which describes the portfolio of HRP research and technology tasks.
The Advanced Capabilities Division Research and Technology Task Book is an online database of research projects supported by the Human Research Program (HRP) and Exploration Technology Development Program (ETDP) within NASA's Advanced Capabilities Division (ACD). Research projects within the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) are also covered. Information includes project descriptions, annual research results, research impacts, and a listing of publications resulting from this NASA-funded research.
