Thank you, Kristian Myhre The DOE Isotope Program (DOE IP) is saying farewell and thank you to Technical Advisor, Dr. Kristian Myhre. While we are all sad to say goodbye, we are appreciative of the work he has done for the Isotope Program. We wish you all the best in your future! Dr. Kristian Myhre joined the DOE IP as a Technical Advisor in 2021 as a national lab detailee.…
BNL AP Hot Cells
Since 2014, the DOE Isotope Program has sponsored the Tri-Lab research effort to provide accelerator-produced Ac-225 for radiotherapy. Thorium-232 targets are irradiated in proton accelerators at Los Alamos and Brookhaven national laboratories, then shipped to Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which performs chemical processing and Ac-225 separation. This collaboration has established reliable,…
Spring Stakeholder Meetings 2023
The DOE IP invites you to join us for virtual "one-on-one" stakeholder meetings on May 23, May 24 and May 31, 2023. These meetings offer an excellent opportunity for companies and institutions to discuss isotope supply and demand firsthand with the federal DOE IP director, federal DOE program managers, and the NIDC staff. We are looking forward to insightful discussions with the…

Students will perform graduate research at national laboratories The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science is pleased to announce that the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2023 Solicitation 1 cycle. Applications are due 5:00pm Eastern Time on Wednesday, May 3, 2023. SCGSR application assistance workshops will be held…
2023 NIDC Commercial Customer Survey
The NIDC, on behalf of the DOE Isotope Program, seeks input from commercial stakeholders on anticipated isotope product needs and potential supply shortages in the next five years. With this valuable information, the DOE IP will gain a clearer understanding of future market demand and, as a result, can better serve industrial and research entities by tailoring isotope production to meet…

Today, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced $56 million to provide research opportunities to historically underrepresented groups and institutions in STEM. The funding, through the DOE Office of Science’s Reaching a New Energy Sciences Workforce (RENEW) initiative, will support internships, mentorship, and training programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs…
DOE Seal
The DOE Office of Science is excited to announce it is accepting proposals for the 2023 DOE Office of Science Early Career Research Program to support the research of outstanding scientists early in their careers. The program will support over 80 early career researchers at U.S. academic institutions and DOE National Laboratories. To be eligible for the program, a researcher must…
