The objective of this funding opportunity is to 1) support researchers who will design and implement scientific protocols to investigate health risks associated with space travel, 2) maximize the use of Bio-A and Bio-M systems for in situ data collection to:
.  contribute to the understanding, mitigation or elimination of health risks associated with human space flight;
.  contribute to a better understanding of similar health issues or applications on Earth;
.  propose innovative space life science studies to be conducted on the ISS including those that may use astronauts as subjects;
.  minimize requirements for transport of materials to and from the ISS;
.  foster training of highly qualified personnel in space health and life sciences.
