Young scientists receive NSBRI space biomedical research fellowships

HOUSTON, Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Five young scientists have received First Award Fellowships from the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI). Through this two-year program, they will conduct biomedical research with the aim of helping to protect astronaut health during long-duration spaceflights.


In addition to receiving mentorship from a faculty member at their home institution, the fellows will become members of one of NSBRI's seven scientific research teams. This will allow them to interact with some of the nation's leading researchers in their fields and to participate in NSBRI and NASA meetings.

"This new class is filled with some of the most promising young researchers this nation has to offer," said Dr. Jeffrey P. Sutton, NSBRI President, CEO and Institute Director. "The fellows benefit from the program through the research experience they gain and the interactions they have with leading scientists. The human spaceflight community is also a beneficiary because NSBRI First Award Fellows have a history of conducting research that is valuable in reducing the health risks associated with long-duration spaceflight, and in improving life on Earth."

The 2013-2015 NSBRI fellows, their institutions, teams and mentors are:

Dr. Alix C. Deymier-Black
Washington University, St Louis, Mo.
Musculoskeletal Alterations Team     
Mentor: Dr. Stavros Thomopoulos

Julianna C. Simon
University of Washington, Seattle
Smart Medical Systems and Technology Team
Mentor: Dr. '/>"/>
