Characterization of Microorganisms from the International Space Station Potable Water System: Understanding Microbial Responses that Could Impact Flig Characterization of Microorganisms from the International Space StationPotable Water System: Understanding Microbial Responses that CouldImpact Flight Operations The proposed work is for the participation of the subcontractor, Dr. Cheryl Nickerson (Professor in the Center for Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology, the Biodesign Institute, Arizona State University) to determine if microorganisms commonly isolated from the International Space Station (ISS) potable water system alter their stress responses when cultured in a spaceflight analogue. These experiments will be performed using NASA spaceflight analogue bioreactors (Rotating Wall Vessels/RWVs), which have been demonstrated to mimic aspects of spaceflight on microorganisms.
