HIPPO – Horizon-Broadening Isotope Production Pipeline Opportunities
The Horizon-Broadening Isotope Production Pipeline Opportunities (HIPPO) collaboration, sponsored by the Department of Energy’s Isotope Program, exists to expose students to the different activities that are required to provide the nation with radioisotopes needed for science and other applications. We are committed to bringing a diverse group of students to sites involved in research and production of isotopes across the country.
TREND – Texas Research Epanding Nuclear Diversity
The Texas Research Expanding Nuclear Diversity (TREND) collaboration, led by Texas A&M University, exists to provide nuclear science research opportunities for students from four Texas universities that serve primarily minority communities: Prairie View A&M University, Texas A&M University’s Higher Education Center at McAllen, Texas Lutheran University, and The University of Texas at El Paso.
