NASA HERO Appendix B Released: NASA Human Research Program Omnibus Opportunity

Status Report From: NASA HQ
Posted: Wednesday, July 31, 2019

NASA’s Human Research Program (HRP) has released solicited research response area NRA 80JSC019N0001-OMNIBUS “NASA Human Research Program Omnibus Opportunity” that solicits applied research in support of HRP goals and objectives. This response area is Appendix B of the Human Exploration Research Opportunities (HERO) NRA (80JSC019N0001).

 

NASA is soliciting investigations lasting no more than one year that provide innovative approaches to any of the risks and gaps contained in the Integrated Research Plan (http://humanresearchroadmap.nasa.gov) of the Human Research Program. NASA is also soliciting novel research ideas that might not be directly aligned with HRP’s identified risks from new investigators who have not received funding from NASA HRP, the National Space Biomedical Research Institute, or the Translational Research Institute for Space Health in the last ten years.

 

Appendix B of the HERO NRA and associated documentation can be found at: https://tinyurl.com/HERO19-OMNIBUS.

 

The HERO NRA including all open appendices is available through the NASA Research Opportunities homepage at:https://tinyurl.com/NASA-HERO-2019.

 

A virtual Pre-Proposers Conference is scheduled for August 16, 2019, and more details will be posted shortly alongside this solicitation on NSPIRES. Appendix B Step-1 proposals are due September 5, 2019.  Invited Appendix B Step-2 proposals are due December 2, 2019.

 

All categories of United States (U.S.) institutions are eligible to submit proposals in response to the NRA. Principal Investigators may collaborate with universities, Federal Government laboratories, the private sector, and state and local government laboratories. In all such arrangements, the applying entity is expected to be responsible for administering the project according to the management approach presented in the proposal. NASA’s policy is to conduct research with non-U.S. organizations on a cooperative, no exchange-of-funds basis.

 

This email is being sent on behalf of HRP and is intended as an information announcement to the research community related to the NASA Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD).

 

Thank you for your continued interest in NASA. Please refer to the solicitation document for contact information.
