The 2016 NASA Human Research Program Investigators’ Workshop (HRP IWS 2016) is the annual meeting for NASA- and NSBRI-funded investigators. The meeting will be held Monday, February 8, through Thursday, February 11, 2016, at the Galveston Island Convention Center (GICC) in Galveston, TX.
The workshop’s goal is to provide an informal, collegial atmosphere for cross-disciplinary interaction. The theme of the workshop is Integrated Pathways to Mars.
Scientific sessions featuring presentations by principal investigators will be organized according to NASA Human Research Program elements:
Behavioral Health and Performance (BHP)
Exploration Medical Capability (ExMC)
Human Health Countermeasures (HHC)
Space Human Factors and Habitability (SHFH)
and Space Radiation (SR)
Specific topics covered at the workshop include the role of the individual investigator in HRP’s risk-management structure, and statistical approaches to experiments with small numbers of subjects.
