Last Published:  07/30/21 01:05:34 PM (Central)
Short Title: Space Radiation Risk Assessment Project
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
  • Specific Aim A: To facilitate the integration of space radiobiology research results into improved models of radiation risk projections.
  • Specific Aim B: To complete the cancer risk uncertainty analysis factors to be used for near-term mission planning (trade studies), and to update these as new radiobiological data sets become available.
  • Specific Aim C: To develop descriptive and predictive models of modifications to biochemical pathways known likely to be causative of cancer risk.
  • Specific Aim D: To integrate or develop new data and models of DNA damage, transmissible chromosomal aberration including translocation, insertions, terminal deletion including telomere loss, and other aberrations related to chromosomal instability or cancer initiation, incorporating applications to the simulations in Specific Aim C.
  • Specific Aim E: To perform a comprehensive assessment of available acute radiation risk projection models, and to develop simulation software of acute risk for mission design assessments.
