The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Johnson Space Center is releasing a NASA Research Announcement (NRA), Cooperative Agreement Notice for GROUND-BASED STUDIES IN SPACE RADIOBIOLOGY. Research to be supported will reduce the uncertainties in risk predictions for cancer/ radiation risks; provide the necessary data/knowledge to develop risk projection models for central nervous system (CNS) and other degenerative tissue risks; and advance the understanding of the mechanisms of biological damage that underlies radiation health risks.
On or about March 17, 2009 this NRA will be available electronically by opening the NASA Research Opportunities homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and then linking through the menu listings “Solicitations” to “Open Solicitations.” This National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Research Announcement (NRA) solicits ground-based proposals for the Space Radiation Program Element (SRPE) components of the Human Research Program (HRP).
Proposals are solicited by the SRPE 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.
Step-1 proposals are due on April 23, 2009, and invited Step-2 proposals are due on June 25, 2009. Proposals are required to be submitted electronically and must be submitted by an authorized official of the proposing organization.
Participation is open to all categories of organizations, including educational institutions, industry, nonprofit organizations, NASA Centers, and other Government Agencies. Electronic proposals may be submitted via the NASA Centers, and other Government Agencies. Electronic proposals may be submitted via the NASA Proposal data system NSPIRES or via Grants.gov. Every organization that intends to submit a proposal in response to this NRA must be registered with NSPIRES, and such registration must identify the authorized organizational representative(s) who will submit the electronic proposal. Each electronic proposal system places requirements on the registration of principal investigators and other participants (e.g. co-investigators). Potential proposers and proposing organizations are urged to access the system(s) well in advance of the proposal due date(s) of interest to familiarize themselves with its structure and enter the requested information. Questions concerning responding to this NRA may be addressed to the contacts referenced in the full solicitation document.
This is a broad agency announcement as specified in FAR 6.102 (d)(2). Notwithstanding the posting of this opportunity at FedBizOpps.gov, nspires.nasaprs.com, or Grants.gov, NASA reserves the right to determine the appropriate award instrument for each proposal selected pursuant to this announcement.
