Abstract: The responsibility for curating NASA's astromaterials collections falls to the NASA Curation Office at Johnson Space Center. Under the governing document, NASA Policy Directive (NPD) 7100.10F and derivative requirements documents, JSC is charged with curation of all extraterrestrial material under NASA control, including future NASA missions to include material returned in Mars Sample Return (MSR) efforts, OSIRIS-REx, NASA's subset of Hayabusa-2 samples, and any other sample return missions. The Directive defines Curation as activities including documentation, preservation, sample preparation, distribution, and tracking of samples for research, education, and public outreach. In this abstract we will describe Curation's research and development efforts to improve the care of existing collections and prepare for future NASA sample return missions. These efforts are collectively referred to as Advanced Curation, a term first coined in 2002.
