Last Published:  07/30/21 01:05:34 PM (Central)
Short Title: Musculoskeletal Health
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI)
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Solicited
Aims:

1) Does partial weight bearing (~1/6 g) mitigate losses observed with full unloading (~ 0 g)? 

2) Does low-dose radiation exposure change the bone or muscle response to partial gravity? 

Integration/Unique Aspects: Coordination of radiation exposures with Brookhaven National Laboratory and NASA Space Radiation Space Laboratory (NSRL).
