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

institute that provides an introduction to NASA Johnson Space Center's research facilities and programs.

"The NSBRI Fellowship represents a unique opportunity to pursue my research related to NASA-Life Science Program in an unique scientific environment and with the mentorship of an outstanding scientist like Dr. Fornace. My training will benefit from the constant interaction with investigators on the NSBRI Radiation Effects Team whose research is focused on determining the risks posed by space radiation exposure and on developing countermeasures to minimize these risks. Furthermore, the multidisciplinary training I will receive in Dr. Fornace's lab will contribute to expand my skills and to broaden my perspective on space radiobiology problems."

To be selected, applicants submit detailed research project proposals to investigate a solution to a space health risk or to develop a technology needed to enable research or medical care in space. The research must involve a mentor and be carried out at a U.S. laboratory doing space-related biomedical or biotechnological research.

Funded by NASA, NSBRI studies the health risks related to long-duration spaceflight with peer-reviewed science, technology and education projects at more than 60 institutions across the United States.

The Institute's science and technology projects address bone and muscle loss, cardiovascular changes, balance and orientation, radiation exposure, neurobehavioral and psychosocial factors, remote medical care and related technologies, and habitability and performance issues such as sleep cycles and lunar dust exposure. Research findings also impact the understanding and treatment of similar medical conditions experienced on Earth.
