E.11 Research Pathfinder for Beyond Low Earth Orbit Space Biology Investigations solicits proposals for biological research experiments to be flown beyond LEO as internal payloads on the capsule of the Orion spacecraft during the upcoming Artemis II mission. To be eligible, proposals to this program element must utilize and will be limited to only one of the two following model organisms: Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly) or Caenorhabditis elegans (nematode).
ROSES-2022 Amendment 42 releases official text and due dates for E.11 Research Pathfinder for Beyond Low Earth Orbit Space Biology Investigations, which was previously released as draft. Proposals to this program will be submitted by a binding two-step process in which the Notice of Intent is replaced by a mandatory Step-1 proposal that must be submitted by an organization's Authorized Organizational Representative. Only proposers who submit a Step-1 proposal are eligible to submit a Step-2 (full) proposal (see Section 4 of this program element). Step-1 proposals are due September 1, 2022, and Step-2 proposals are due October 13, 2022.
On or about August 11 2022, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2022" (NNH22ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at https://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2022
