Short Title: Mouse G-Dose Response on JAXA-ISS (MHU-8)
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Other: JAXA
Space Biology Program
Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Aim 1: Quantify effects of varying G-levels on neuromotor performance, as well as bone, muscle and joint structure and function in mice centrifuged aboard the ISS
Aim 2: Determine cell and molecular mechanisms underlying the musculoskeletal and neuromotor response to microgravity and varying G-levels induced by centrifugation
