NASA Specialized Center of Research

The NASA Specialized Center of Research (NSCOR) incorporates a number of complementary research projects that focus on a single research area. The overall objective of this NSCOR is to model the relative risk of colonic and stomach tumorigenesis for high priority space radiation beams and compare to γ radiation where human epidemiologic data are available. The Georgetown University team houses drives the NSCOR program progress with external collaborators, including Dr. Brenner from Columbia University, Dr. Shay from UTSW, and Dr. Meltzer from NCI.
