|Ongoing Research - Task Book|
| In order to facilitate a better understanding
of the research NASA supports, the NASA Office of Biological and Physical Research
(OBPR) has developed two comprehensive annual
publications, called task books. These task books, one for each Division,
include descriptions of all peer-reviewed projects, or tasks, funded by
the Life Sciences and Microgravity Research Divisions during all or part
of a particular fiscal year. Investigators are required to update respective
taskbook entries on an annual basis.
The information for each task will consist primarily of a task description, task progress, and a list of publications, presentations, and other accomplishments (e.g. journal articles, books and book chapters, published meeting papers and abstracts, NASA technical documents, and patents) for that fiscal year.
This publication is an important source of information about NASA-funded life sciences and microgravity research, providing users such as NASA program managers and scientists, funded investigators, peer reviewers of NASA grant proposals, the scientific community, and the Congress an up-to-date account of OBPR research.
