Research Opportunities in Space Biology (ROSBio) – 2016

https://nspires.nasaprs.com/…/solicitations/summary!init.do… Three appendices released 8/16/2017. Non-binding Notices of Intents (NOIs) for all three are due September 14, 2017 at 5 PM Eastern Time, and full proposals are due October 16, 2017 at 5 PM Eastern Time. See below for specifics:

“Solicitation of Proposals to Conduct Research Using Microgravity Simulation Devices” NASA Research Announcement (NRA) Appendix D - NNH16ZTT001N-MS NRA. This Appendix solicits proposals that will use microgravity simulation devices to test specific hypotheses regarding the effects of altered gravity on biological systems, including cells, tissues, microorganisms, plants, and whole organisms. Proposing investigators will have the option of using the Microgravity Simulation Support Laboratory (MSSL) at the Kennedy Space Center, or using microgravity simulation devices at other locations. See https://nspires.nasaprs.com/…/solicitations/summary!init.do… for details.

“Solicitation of Proposals to Conduct Research In Parabolic and Suborbital Flights” NASA Research Announcement (NRA) Appendix E - NNH16ZTT001N-PS NRA. This Appendix solicits proposals for Space Biology research projects that will use parabolic and/or suborbital flights to assess how biological systems respond during transient changes in gravity. Investigators may propose to use existing flight hardware or custom-designed equipment to study a diverse group of biological systems including cells, tissues, microorganisms, plants, or animals. See https://nspires.nasaprs.com/…/solicitations/summary!init.do… for details.

“Solicitation of Proposals to Conduct Research on Antarctic Balloon Flights” NASA Research Announcement (NRA) Appendix F - NNH16ZTT001N-AB NRA. This Appendix solicits proposals for research experiments that will use balloon flights managed from NASA’s Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility to investigate the effects of radiation exposures (that are similar to those encountered in deep space) on biological systems (cell culture, invertebrate animal models, plants, algae, and microorganisms). All proposed experiments will be secondary payloads and will piggyback upon primary payloads flown on balloon campaigns. Balloon flights for selected investigators will be arranged by the NASA Payload Development Team. See https://nspires.nasaprs.com/…/solicitations/summary!init.do… for details.
