Task Molecular and cellular effects of heavy ion fragmentation due to shielding (Completed)
Last Published:  11/23/20 11:55:12 AM (Central)
Short Title: HeavyIon Frag
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
  1. To test the hypothesis that shielded heavy ions may result in more complex DNA damage to the cells as compared to unshielded heavy ions
  2. To test the hypothesis that the molecular response to shielded radiation is different from that induced by unshielded radiation
  3. To test the hypothesis that shielded radiation may have more deleterious effects on the cell as compared to unshielded radiation and to elucidate the mechanisms involved in repair of DNA damage
