Biomedical Research Advances for Space Health (2201 BRASH)

Content

TRISH is seeking scientific proposals for disruptive technologies, therapies and/or approaches to protecting astronaut health through enhancing pre-existing internal cellular repair functions.

Deep space exploration comes with multiple physiological and psychological stressors for astronauts, including increased radiation exposure, gravity changes, isolation and confinement, and an omnipresent hostile/dangerous environment. These stressors negatively impact health through tissue degradation, DNA damage, cell death, neurological changes, and more.

The BRASH 2201 solicitation seeks ways to reduce multiple crew health risks while enhancing the body’s ability to control endogenous repair and maintenance processes to support optimal organ, tissue, and cell function for astronauts.

Step-1 proposals are due on Jan. 26, 2022, by 5 p.m. ET. Selections will be announced in October 2022. View the pre-proposal webinar recording from Dec. 17, 2021.
