Short Title: Awakening ERV
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Directed
Aims:

To understand how the space environment might influence activation of ERVs.

  1. To test the hypothesis that microgravity can induce activation of ERVs in human stem/progenitor cells in vitro.
  2. To test the hypothesis that space radiation can induce activation of ERVs in mouse tissues.
