    This task used quantitative microbial risk assessment approaches that have been applied to great success in the food and potable water industries data sets obtained in space travel. Findings are the basis for the development of a systematic approach that will reduce health risks to crews while at the same time reducing costs by optimizing allocation of resources.


  1. Consolidated and integrated results of studies and modeling to support the development and incorporation of infectious disease risk data into operational processes.
  2. Provided data that will support solicited studies that address risks associated with Host-Microbe interactions.
