The deadline for applications is February 7, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. Central Time.

Up to 15 students will be selected for the course to be held this summer at the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in Long Island, New York from June 6-24, 2016 (arrival on June 1 for registration and orientation on June 2 and 3). The goal of the course is to provide scientific and practical information to graduate students and scientists who are either new to the NASA program or to charged particle radiobiology. At the completion of the summer school, students will have received the full complement of training required to conduct their own experiments at BNL.

Course topics will include DNA damage and repair, genotoxicity, cell cycle checkpoints and apoptosis, mutagenesis, genomic instability, epigenetics, cell and tissue signaling, neurodegeneration, systems biology, and the relationship of these processes to carcinogenesis and late degenerative effects following exposure to space radiation, as well as the space radiation environment, physics and biochemistry of charged particle interactions, track structure, dosimetry, accelerator operations, and space radiation protection.

Both foreign nationals and U.S. citizens may apply to the program. All selected students must satisfy BNL and Department of Energy safety and security requirements in order to be admitted. Due to the intense nature of the course, applicants must demonstrate oral and written proficiency in the English language. Expenses for travel within the U.S. and for room and board will be covered for program participants, with the exception of U.S. civil servants or employees of some government agencies. Successful applicants from outside the U.S. must provide for their travel to and from one of the three New York/Long Island Airports (Kennedy, LaGuardia, or MacArthur/Islip).

The course curriculum as well as the participant and faculty lists from the 2015 course may be found online at: http://www.dsls.usra.edu/spacerad/2015/.
