Biomedical Research Advances for Space Health (BRASH 2201) solicitation is now open

The Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) has released its BRASH-2201 solicitation. With this call, the Institute is seeking scientific proposals for disruptive technologies, therapies, and/or approaches to protecting astronaut health through enhancing pre-existing internal cellular repair functions.

Deep space exploration comes with multiple physiological and psychological stressors for astronauts, including increased radiation exposure, gravity changes, isolation and confinement and an omnipresent hostile/dangerous environment. These stressors negatively impact health through tissue degradation, DNA damage, cell death, neurological changes, and more.

The BRASH 2201 solicitation seeks ways to reduce multiple crew health risks while enhancing the body’s ability to control endogenous repair and maintenance processes to support optimal organ, tissue and cell function for astronauts.

Step-1 proposals are due January 26, 2022 by 5 p.m. EST.
