E.9 Space Biology: Research Studies solicits proposals for ground-based plant or animal studies (and/or their associated microbes) that will characterize the responses of these organisms to conditions that recapitulate the stressors encountered in space exploration, specifically, exposure to lunar regolith (simulant).
January 5, 2023. A small change was made to the phrasing in Section 2.3.2 of E.9 Space Biology Research about the timing of the release of the details for requests for access to genuine lunar regolith. New text is in bold, deleted text is struck through. The due dates remain unchanged: Step-1 proposals are due February 1, 2023, and Step-2 proposals are due April 25, 2023.
