Space Life & Physical Sciences Research & Applications Division Task Book

The Space Life & Physical Sciences Research & Applications Division Task Book is an online database of research projects supported by the Space Biology, Physical Sciences, and Human Research Program research areas within the Space Life & Physical Sciences Research & Applications (SLPSRA) Division of NASA's Human Exploration and Operations (HEO) Mission Directorate. Research projects within the Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) are also covered, beginning with FY2017 projects. Research projects within the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI), all completed by May 2017, are also included. Information includes project descriptions, annual research results, research impacts, and a listing of publications resulting from this NASA-funded research.
