Join Our 2021 Isotope User Group Meetings
Join Our 2021 Isotope User Group Meetings! In 2021 the DOE Isotope Program will host four virtual user group meetings focused on the following emerging alpha and beta emitters:actinium-225, astatine-211, lead-212, and new this year, copper-67. The purpose of the meetings is to encourage free discussion and collaboration amongst users of specific isotopes and accelerate their widespread use in…

Egle with the EMIS at Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Ask Brian Egle about his favorite aspect of his job and he'll tell you it's the variety. “It’s really fun and really engaging to get to ask yourself, ‘What do you want to work on today?’” says Brian, a recently appointed section head in the newly formed Isotope Science & Engineering Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. As part of a lab-wide organizational update known as ”…
FOA: Traineeship in Isotope R&D and Production
The DOE Office of Science is excited to announce a new Funding Opportunity for Traineeship in Isotope R&D and Production. Up to $2 million will be provided to establish a traineeship program aimed to advance workforce development in the field of isotope production, processing, and associated research, with a preference for minority-serving institutions. This program supports…
Student Bursary for Pacifichem 2021
The DOE Isotope Program is excited to announce they have made bursaries available for up to 30 awardees of $1000 each to attend selected radiochemistry-related symposia at Pacifichem 2021. This financial assistance is granted to help offset the costs of attendance and is available to undergraduate students, graduate students, or postdoctoral fellows during the time of the Pacifichem…
