Research and Technology Development to Support Crew Health and Performance in Space Exploration
NASA Human Research Program (HRP)
NASA's Human Research Program (HRP) conducts research and develops technologies that allow humans to travel
safely and productively in space. The Program uses evidence from data collected on astronauts, as well as
other supporting studies. These data are stored in the research data repository, Life Sciences Data Archive (LSDA).
The Space and Clinical Operations Division mission is to optimize the health, fitness, and well
being of flight crews, their dependents and the employees of the Johnson Space
Center in Texas, and the White Sands Test Facility in New Mexico. Astronaut medical
data collected for clinical purposes are archived,
maintained, and analyzed by the Lifetime Surveillance of Astronaut Health (LSAH).
