Last Published:  07/30/21 01:05:31 PM (Central)
Responsible Element: Exploration Medical Capability (ExMC)
Status: Closed
Closure Rationale

Sufficient knowledge exists with respect to understanding the renal stone formation process in spaceflight. Computational models that predict the likelihood of renal stone formation during spaceflight have been developed and validated. ExMC has no plans for new research or work on this gap.
