GUMC young scientist selected postdoc Fellow at National Space Biomedical Research Institute
Date:2/26/2009

Washington, DC The National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI) has selected Daniela Trani, PhD, of Georgetown University Medical Center as one of four young investigators in the nation for its 2008-2010 Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. Trani is a postdoctoral fellow in Georgetown's Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center and in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular & Cellular Biology.

In the NSBRI, the Fellows' research projects address areas of interest to exploration missions and include investigating methods to maintain bone health and stimulate bone rebuilding. Additionally, the Fellows examine the acute effects of space radiation exposure to determine whether there are adverse as well as radioprotective changes in cells following proton exposure.

Trani's research will investigate injury responses including inflammatory signaling induced by space radiation. The study will use a genetic approach in an in vivo model to investigate the effects of radiation-induced inflammatory signaling on cellular and molecular parameters in the intestine. Exposures, such as during a solar storm, could impact crew performance by perturbing gastrointestinal function.

"As the space program prepares for larger crews on the International Space Station and plans a return to the moon, America needs young scientists with a keen interest in solving the human health problems related to long stays in space," said Jeffrey P. Sutton, PhD, MD, NSBRI director.

The two-year program offers Fellows the opportunity to manage their own space-related biomedical research project while continuing to learn from an experienced faculty mentor. Trani is a research fellow in her mentor's lab, Albert J. Fornace Jr., MD, a professor of oncology who holds the Molecular Cancer Research Chair at Lombardi.

NSBRI Fellows receive a $40,000 stipend and funds to cover health insurance and travel to NSBRI-related meetings. Fellows also attend a summer
