Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):

Specific aim 1 endothelial barrier function.

To determine the permeability and tight junction integrity of experimental models

exposed to high and low LET space radiation in conjunction with microgravity.

Specific aim 2 Angiogenesis and mature vessel integrity.

To determine the additive or synergistic effect of microgravity on the effect of space

radiation on angiogenesis and on mature vessels.
