Boise State selected by NASA for zero gravity research flight!

Boise State University is honored to announce the selection of our multidisciplinary undergraduate research team into NASA's 2011 Microgravity University flight program!

During the upcoming months, we'll be implementing our proposed experiment (currently entitled Fluorescent Monitoring of Parabolic Flight-Induced Calcium Flux in Osteocyte Osteoblast  Co-cultures) and sharing the process here in cyber space.

Intrigued by the conventional procedure for culturing bone cells? Interested in what makes an experiment rig suitable for zero gravity flight testing?  Bookmark this page and check back often for answers revealed in the form of video tutorials and personal accounts of the team...all the way through the June 2-11 flight week at Johnson Space Center.
