New NASA Research Announcement NNJ21ZSA001N-OMNIBUS NASA Human Research Program Omnibus Opportunity NASA’s Human Research Program (HRP) has released solicited research response area NRA NNJ23ZSA001N-OMNIBUS “NASA Human Research Program Omnibus Opportunity” that solicits applied research
in support of HRP goals and objectives.
This response area is Appendix A of the Human Exploration Research Opportunities (HERO) NRA (NNJ23ZSA001N).
NASA is soliciting investigations lasting no more than one year that provide innovative approaches to any of the risks and gaps contained in the Integrated Research Plan (https://humanresearchroadmap.nasa.gov) of the Human Research Program.
NASA is also soliciting novel research ideas that might not be directly aligned with HRP’s identified risks from new investigators or early career investigators who have not received funding from NASA HRP, NASA Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, the National Space Biomedical Research Institute, or the Translational Research Institute for Space Health in the last ten years.
Early career investigators must additionally be no more than ten years from their terminal research degree or clinical training.
Proposals will be reviewed using a dual-anonymous peer review (DAPR) process in which the identity of reviewers will not be shared with proposers and the identity of proposers will not be shared with reviewers until after the technical merit has been evaluated for all anonymized proposals.
See the solicitation for details on preparing proposals.
Appendix A of the HERO NRA and associated documentation can be found at:
The HERO NRA including all open appendices is available through the NASA Research Opportunities homepage at:
A virtual Pre-Proposers Conference is scheduled for December 13, 2022, at 10:30 AM ET, and more details are posted alongside this solicitation on NSPIRES.
Appendix A Step-1 proposals are due January 6, 202 3. Invited Appendix A Step-2 proposals are due April 4, 202 3. All categories of United States (U.S.) institutions are eligible to submit proposals in response to the NRA.
Principal Investigators may collaborate with universities, Federal Government laboratories, the private sector, and state and local government laboratories.
In all such arrangements, the applying entity is expected to be responsible for administering the project according to the management approach presented in the proposal.
NASA’s policy is to conduct research with non-U. S. organizations on a cooperative, no exchange-of-funds basis.
