NASA Research at NCRR supported facilities

Anthony Hayward M.D., Ph.D.

Director, Division for Clinical Research Resources, NCRR


Current Areas of NCRR Space-Related Health Research

  • NASA research ongoing at 10 clinical research sites: 9 GCRCs

  • Annual costs about $1.5M

  • Principal topics:

    • Bed rest related to demineralization

    • immune function

    • Anesthesia

    • Endocrinology


Promising Areas for Space-Related Health Research Collaborations

  • NCRR provides:

    • Access to controlled environments

    • Specialized cores & equipment

    • Clinical informatics

  • NASA resources include:

    • Translational technologies, approaches and techniques

    • Collaborative philosophy


What existing resources could be developed to facilitate space-related health research?

  • Build on BIRN experience to integrate and compare imaging and other measurement (e.g., DEXA) data

  • Pilot a program to explore defined vocabularies for NASA research

  • Assist in achieving recruitment goals, perhaps with subject recruitment cores
