Task NSCOR: Space Radiation and Intestinal Tumorigenesis: Risk Assessment and Counter Measure Development (Completed)
Last Published:  07/30/21 01:05:34 PM (Central)
Short Title: Intestinal Tumorigenesis
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
The strategy is to compare results for space radiation, protons and HZE (56-Fe ions), on intestinal tumor development to that of low-LET (linear energy transfer) radiation (gamma rays). Since low-LET risk estimates are available for human populations, we will then be able to model the relative risk for space radiation. In particular, this ratio can then be extrapolated to human exposure to low-LET radiation to then make an estimate of risk for humans exposed to space radiation.
