Short Title: Polar VitD
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
  1. Determine the time course and magnitude of changes in vitamin D status during wintering over in Antarctica, with or without vitamin D supplementation.
