HRP Portfolio Reviews
In 2008, the National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine (IOM) reviewed the HRP’s compilation of evidence on human health risks in spaceflight and NASA’s risk identification and management process (IOM, 2008). The IOM review of the HRP evidence occurs approximately every 5 years.

The HRP Standing Review Panels (SRPs) were activated in 2009 with the purpose of reviewing the Integrated Research Plan (IRP) that outlines gaps and associated tasks for each risk in the HRP portfolio. Panel members include university faculty; NASA civil servants; non-NASA civil servants from the military, Department of Energy (DOE) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); and representatives from industry. These panels convene approximately once a year to provide updated recommendations to the HRP. The SRPs also review new and updated Evidence Reports in the years between IOM reviews.

A Research and Clinical Advisory Panel (RCAP) is used to review the evidence and research plan for the Risk of Spaceflight-Induced Intracranial Hypertension/Vision Alterations (VIIP).
