Clay Pandorf, a postdoctoral researcher in physiology & biophysics, has received a fellowship from the National Space Biomedical Research Institute to support his studies on the use of exercise to counteract muscle loss in the reduced gravity of space. NSBRI is a nonprofit scientific partnership with NASA committed to finding practical, validated and effective means of maintaining human health and performance during long spaceflights. One of only four newly named fellows, Pandorf (pictured) will get a $40,000 stipend and attend a summer institute in Houston that provides an introduction to the Johnson Space Center’s research facilities and programs.
