Funded by NASA, Anthony Lau and his biomedical engineering student researchers will explore physiological adaptations to spaceflight.

 

Research done by TCNJ undergrads may slip the surly bonds of earth, as NASA plans to use the work as part of an effort to gauge the impact of long space flights on the health and performance of astronauts.

Anthony Lau, associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, was awarded a $150,000 grant from the space agency to expand his research on the effects of radiation on bone health. Lau and his students are working with Catherine Davis-Takacs at Uniformed Services University in Bethesda, Maryland to determine the relationship between bone and cognitive changes from radiation exposure.
