2021UGM recordings and presentations
In August, the DOE Isotope Program and the NIDC hosted four isotope user group meetings focusing on emerging isotopes: actinium-225, astatine-211, lead-212, and copper-67. If you were unable to attend, don't worry, you can now watch the recordings and view the presentations from each meeting. View the UGM recordings and presentations
EANM 2021 Annual Congress
This week marks the start of the 34th Annual Congress of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM). The DOE Isotope Program is excited to have a virtual booth at this industry-leading event again this year. This year's Annual Congress takes place October 20—23, 2021, and we are excited to connect with our European colleagues. If you plan to…
SCGSR Applications are Now Open
The Department of Energy (DOE) is pleased to announce that its Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2021 Solicitation 2.  The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory in collaboration with a DOE laboratory…
Fall Stakeholder Meetings
The DOE IP invites you to join us for virtual "one-on-one" stakeholder meetings November 2–4, 2021. These meetings offer an excellent opportunity for companies and institutions to discuss isotope supply and demand issues firsthand with the federal DOE IP director, federal DOE program managers, and the NIDC staff from Oak Ridge National Laboratory. We are looking forward to these…
Early Career Research Program FY 2022

The program will support over 60 early career researchers at U.S. academic institutions and DOE National Laboratories. To be eligible for the program, a researcher must…
Th-228 Production Team at ORNL
  As a medical isotope, thorium-228 has a lot of potential – and Oak Ridge National Laboratory produces a lot. That’s one reason ORNL researchers are especially excited about studies looking at different medical applications for the radioisotope. ORNL produces large quantities of Th-228 for the Department of Energy’s Isotope Program as a byproduct of actinium-227 production. Both…
