NASA Selects 12 Space Radiobiology Research Proposals
August 31, 2012

This National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Research Announcement (NRA) solicits ground-based proposals for the Space Radiation Element of the Human Research Program in the area of Space Radiation Biology utilizing beams of high energy heavy ions simulating space radiation at the NASA Space Radiation Laboratory (NSRL), at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in Upton, New York. The major goal of NASA's space radiation research is to enable the human exploration of space without exceeding limiting risks from space radiation.
