NASA OMB Approval No. 2700-0042
NRA 95 OLMSA-01
NASA Research Announcement Soliciting Proposals for 
Ground-Based and Small Payloads Research in Space Life 
Sciences

Life and Biomedical Sciences and Applications Division
Office of Life and Microgravity Sciences and Applications
National Aeronautics and Space Administration

Date NRA Issued:  January 26, 1995
Letters of Intent Due:  March 24, 1995
Proposals Due:  April 21, 1995

This National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) 
Research Announcement (NRA) solicits proposals to participate 
in Ground-Based and Small Payloads Research in Space Life 
Sciences.  This is a broad-based announcement that solicits 
research proposals for all of the major programs of the Life 
and Biomedical Sciences and Applications Division.  The 
specific programs that are included in this announcement are 
Space Biology, Space Physiology and Countermeasures, 
Environmental Health, Space Radiation Health, Space Human 
Factors, Advanced Life Support, Advanced Extravehicular 
Activity Systems, Advanced Technology Development and Data 
Analysis.  Proposals submitted in response to this 
Announcement may be either for standard ground-based research 
investigations or for small payload flight experiments or for 
both.  Proposal to develop experiments aiming at space 
station utilization are particularly encouraged.

Subsequent announcements similar to and based upon this 
Announcement will be updated and issued annually and will be 
the primary means of obtaining research proposals from the 
scientific community for ground and small payloads research 
in the space life sciences.  Although this NRA is broad-
based, it is restricted to the science programs named above 
and described in detail in Appendix A.  The potential 
proposer should read the program descriptions that are of 
interest with care and attempt to focus the proposal on the 
specific research emphases defined in this Announcement.

Participation in the Ground-based and Small Payloads Research 
in Space Life Sciences is open to all individuals and all 
categories of domestic and foreign organizations, industry, 
educational institutions, other nonprofit organizations, NASA 
laboratories, and other U.S. Governmental agencies.  
Proposals which will enhance or complement the scientific 
return from research currently being supported by the 
National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, 
or other Government agencies are encouraged.  

In addition, proposals to advance technology and develop 
practical applications of technology are sought under this 
Announcement.  Because of limitations of access to flight 
opportunities, it is expected that the majority of proposals 
approved in response to this Announcement would be for 
ground-based research.  

A letter of Intent to Propose is requested by March 24, 1995.  
Proposals may be submitted at any time up to April 21, 1995.  
Proposals will be evaluated for scientific/technical value, 
soundness, intrinsic scientific/technical value, relevance, 
implementation feasibility, and cost.  A selection 
announcement will be made between August and October of 1995.  
Funding of selected proposals will begin sometime between 
October 1995 and September 1996.
