Last Published:  07/30/21 01:05:34 PM (Central)
Short Title: Biomarkers for cancer and CVD injury
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):
  • AIM 1: Discovery and validation of miRNAs biomarkers that are altered as a function HZE exposure, at a dose that could result in increased cardiovascular risks in astronauts on long duration space mission.

  • AIM 2: Discovery and validation of miRNAs and lncRNAs altered as a function of exposure to 0.2 Gy Silicon ions in C3H mice and matched sham controls.
