Short Title: Retrospective Radiation effects on Microbes
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):

    Retrospective evaluation to understand the effects of deep-space radiation to changes in the microbial profile of the spaceflight environment and crew members’ resident microbiome. The evaluation should focus on the increased risk of infectious or other microbiologically-associated disease when the microorganism, the host, or both are exposed to radiation levels expected during spaceflight missions.
