This National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
Research Announcement (NRA) solicits proposals to establish 
NASA Specialized Centers of Research and Training (NSCORT) in 
the space life sciences.  This solicitation requests 
proposals in the areas of gravitational biology, 
environmental health, and bioregenerative life support only, 
and is open to all categories of organizations.  The NSCORT 
Program is established exclusively for ground research and 
analysis, and will not directly support space flight 
experimentation.  A Letter of Intent to Propose is
requested by February 17, 1995.  Proposals may be submitted 
at any time up to March 17, 1995.  Proposals will be 
evaluated for intrinsic merit, relevance, and cost.  The 
proposal review process includes a site visit to the 
institutions of the most promising candidates; site visits 
will be scheduled during May and June of 1995.  A selection 
announcement will be made in July 1995, and funding will be 
initiated some time after October 1995.

Appendix A contains technical and program information 
applicable only to this NRA in the general areas in which 
proposals are solicited and includes amendatory guidance to 
Appendix B. Appendix B defines the basic procedures for 
preparation of solicited proposals in response to a NRA.

The Government's obligation to make awards is contingent upon 
the availability of appropriated funds from which payment for 
award purposes can be made.  It is anticipated that 
approximately three awards will be made, each averaging 
$1,000,000 (total costs) annually.  Your interest and 
cooperation in participating in this effort are appreciated.
