NASA’s EPSCoR funds project on genetic assessment of space environment using MEMS Technologies
Louisiana Tech University will receive over $1.4 million in grant funding from NASA’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), through an award to the Louisiana Board of Regents, to serve as the lead institution for research that investigates how high doses of space radiation during extended duration space missions will affect astronauts.
Dr. Niel Crews, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering in Louisiana Tech’s College of Engineering and Science, will lead the research for Louisiana Tech with assistance from teams at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and Grambling State University. The project titled, “Genetic Assessment of the Space Environment using MEMS Technologies,” is funded at $750,000 by NASA’s EPSCoR with a match from the Louisiana Board of Regents.
