Dr. Zheng Wang (Center for Bio/Molecular Science and Engineering, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory) is the Principal Investigator for the Investigating the Roles of Melanin and DNA Repair on Adaptation and Survivability of Fungi in Deep Space study, one of four studies under NASA’s Biological & Physical Sciences Division’s Biological Experiment-01 (BioExpt-01) aboard Artemis I. This investigation will study fungi commonly found in spacecraft (Aspergillus niger) to determine the physiology and molecular pathways responsive to spaceflight, as well as the radioprotective effects of melanin and the DNA damage response.
