Task The Impact of HZE Particles on Adult Neural Stem Cells and Neurogenesis (Completed)
Last Published:  03/26/21 03:34:00 PM (Central)
Short Title: HZE Neurogenesis
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
The proposed research utilizes two novel transgenic mouse models for a comprehensive analysis of adult neural stem cells and their progeny in vivo for the temporal events of cells survival, proliferation, and differentiation in response various low- or high-LET radiation. The resulting information on the long-term neurogenic and/or degenerative activities will provide accurate assessments of CNS risks after space radiation exposure.
