The National Space Biomedical Research Institute’s Graduate Education Program in Space Life Sciences at Texas A&M University is currently accepting applications. The program enables students working toward a Ph.D. to focus on space life sciences and experience advanced courses in biomedical science and engineering, specifically as these fields relate to the space initiative.
The Texas A&M program will train scientists to perform the work necessary to solve three of the most critical problems that limit long-duration spaceflight: bone loss, muscle wasting and effects of cosmic radiation. Graduates will gain an integrated global perspective on these major biological problems of long-duration spaceflight and will be specifically trained in nutritional and exercise physiology countermeasures against those problems.
