Short Title: Radiation Effects on Salmonella
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Planned-Funded - Task expected to be within budget
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Aims: 1. Characterize the impact of spaceflight-analogue culture on the ability of S.
Typhimurium to infect 3-D biomimetic intestinal tissue models before and after exposure to low
dose radiation. 2. Evaluate the ability of the radioprotective compound, EC-18, to protect 3-D
intestinal models from low dose radiation, S. Typhimurium infection, and the cumulative impact
of these stressors.
