The NASA Space Biology Program (formerly the Space Life and Physical Sciences Research and Applications Division of HEOMD) element focuses on ideas that will increase NASA's understanding of how living systems respond to the unique environments that are encountered during space exploration, including the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) environment inside the International Space Station (ISS) and deep space conditions beyond LEO, including transit to and maintenance in Lunar and Martian environments. Therefore, this program element solicits proposals for investigations that characterize how living systems respond and adapt to spaceflight or spaceflight-like conditions.
On or about December 3, 2020, a short paragraph and a URL were added to the end of Section 2.3 of E.12 Space Biology to provide additional information regarding the inclusion of radiation studies in proposals. New text is in bold. The due dates are unchanged.
