'To Infinity and Beyond'

NASA’s National Space Biomedical Research Institute this week named three young investigators who are the recipients of two-year fellowship awards. These awards provide them with the “opportunity to manage their own space-related biomedical research project while continuing to learn from a faculty mentor,” NSBRI says. The John Hopkins School of Medicine’s Catherine Davis, Boise State University’s Liliana Mellor, and Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s Guillaume Vignaux will receive a $50,000 stipends per year to study “the health risks related to long-duration spaceflight,” among other things, the institute adds.
