Amendment 68: ROSES-21 E.11 Space Biology: Animal Studies Step-2 Due Date Delay.

ROSES-2021 Amendment 68 delays the Step-2 proposal due date for ROSES-2021 E.11 Space Biology: Animal Studies. Step-2 proposals are now due April 21, 2022. Only proposers who already submitted a Step-1 proposal can submit a Step-2 proposal.

This new program element, E.11 Space Biology: Animal Studies, specifically solicits proposals for investigations that characterize how animals respond to stressors in spaceflight or spaceflight-like environments. In general, the Space Biology Program focuses on research 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. This program element funding opportunity solicits three different Project Types: Research Investigations (RI), Early Career Investigations (ECI), and Gene Lab Analytical Investigations (GLAI) pertaining to animal and related studies.

On or about April 14, 2022, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2021" (NNH21ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at
