NASA’s Human Research Program (HRP) has released solicited research response area NRA NNJ13ZSA002N-TWINS “Differential Effects on Homozygous Twin Astronauts Associated with Differences in Exposure to Spaceflight Factors” that solicits applied research in support of HRP goals and objectives. This response area is Appendix D of the Human Exploration Research Opportunities (HERO) NRA (NNJ13ZSA002N).

Proposals are solicited for small, short-term investigations of the differences in genetic and related function in twin male homozygous astronauts associated with differential exposure to spaceflight conditions.
Appendix D of the HERO NRA and associated documentation can be found at:{2E8E91D3-385E-5B89-D6DA-79F5869E6A3B}&path=open

The HERO NRA including all open appendices is available through the NASA Research Opportunities homepage at:{3ECC0A86-6C9E-AC76-804C-025A7396B161}&path=open

Appendix D proposals are due September 17, 2013.

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) Human Research Program (HRP).

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