NASA Awards $27 Million Cooperative Agreement to Continue Microgravity Research

NASA's Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, will continue its collaboration with the National Center for Microgravity Research on Fluids and Combustion (NCMR), Cleveland, by issuing a cooperative agreement for research and educational programs.

The 5-year cooperative agreement, valued at $27 million, covers the period July 1, 2002 through July 1, 2007.

NCMR's primary program emphasis is to perform and/or facilitate fundamental research in fluids and combustion and critical path research in support of the nation's space program. The NCMR's program consists of four key elements: fundamental research; support to NASA's research programs; support to NASA's technology programs; and outreach and education. New emphasis will be placed on understanding how fluids and chemical processes influence fundamental biological phenomena, particularly in the reduced gravity environment.

The agreement extends a formal, long-term partnership between Glenn and NCMR, a research organization managed by Universities Space Research Association, Columbia, Md and Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland. Established in 1997, NCMR is located at Glenn and at Case Western Reserve University.
