The Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) at Baylor College of Medicine is seeking out-of-the-box subject matter experts to increase its pool of scientific reviewers for peer review panels. Experts interested in the effects of spaceflight on human physiology and in contributing to the space scientific community are encouraged to apply.

TRISH seeks and funds high-risk, high-reward, high quality and efficient solutions that can be adapted, or translated, for use in space. The current topics for review are:
Predictive algorithms of health, behavior, and medical events;
Improving resilience through nucleotide-based therapy;
Non-pharmacological improvement of human performance;
Multipurpose edible plants for spaceflight applications;
New materials for shielding medications; and
Test your expired medications.
Don’t see your expertise here but still want to contribute? We want your information for future solicitations. To express an interest in serving on prospective TRISH panels, select “other” and provide additional areas of expertise.

A short registration and application should be submitted through NSPIRES and is due on June 1, 2018. The information obtained will be used for planning and peer review purposes. TRISH does not intend to grant an award on the basis of this RFR or to otherwise pay for the information solicited.

Applying does not commit you to serve, nor will TRISH be obligated to invite you to serve on a review panel. The pool of reviewers will enhance the review process with the identification of additional expertise. The community benefits through broadening the reviewer supply. Reviewers benefit by broadening their own personal experience.

The Translational Research Institute for Space Health is funded by a cooperative agreement from NASA to Baylor College of Medicine with consortium partners California Institute of Technology and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
