Route Toward Space Enhancing Human Radioresistance For Space Exploration

Researchers team from NASA Ames Research Center have established a roadmap toward enhancing human radioresistance for space exploration and colonization. Currently there is minimal research being done for radioresistance against HZE irradiation. The importance of these types of studies will be to reduce the associated health risks for space exploration. The study has published in the journal Oncotarget.
