Isotope Production Workshop


Overview

The Texas A&M University Nuclear Solutions Institute, in conjunction with the Cyclotron Institute and the Nuclear Science Center, will host a workshop on March 9, 2017 in College Station, Texas, USA regarding isotope production.  This workshop will highlight the capabilities of the Cyclotron Institute and Research Reactor and explore both current and new opportunities for these facilities to contribute across a variety of research and industry topics.

The Nuclear Science Center houses a 1 MW research reactor and specializes in providing radioisotopes and other irradiation services for research and academia, as well as medical and industrial applications.  The Cyclotron Institute is currently celebrating 50 years of cyclotron-accelerated particle beams. The Institute specializes in pure science research as well as applied studies for industrial component testing, and most recently, medical isotope production.  For more information about the NSC or Cyclotron Institute facilities and capabilities, click on the respective logo below.

The College of Science has also prepared a news article about the workshop.
