Procurement Mechanism(s):

Aim 1 To improve atherosclerotic risk assessment in apparently healthy individuals using state-of-the-art ‘omics” approaches

(genomics, lipidomics, and targeted metabolomics) in order to be able to screen and monitor astronauts for long-duration

and/or deep space missions.

Aim 2 To determine whether “omics” approaches are particularly useful for differentiating endothelial susceptibility to disease.
