The events listed below are of general interest to the isotope production community and are not sponsored by the Department of Energy. If the NIDC is attending an event, information on how to contact us will be provided.




Spring Stakeholder Meetings


The DOE IP invites you to join us for virtual "one-on-one" stakeholder meetings on May 28, and May 29, 2024. Plus, for those planning to attend the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) annual meeting in Toronto, Canada, we are pleased to announce one day of in-person stakeholder meetings on June 10, 2024.

These meetings offer an excellent opportunity for companies and institutions to discuss isotope-related matters firsthand with the federal DOE IP director, federal DOE program managers, and the NIDC staff. We are looking forward to insightful discussions with the aim to better serve the isotope community through a clearer understanding of stakeholder needs and concerns.

If you are interested in scheduling a one-on-one stakeholder meeting, please email Karen Sikes, NIDC Director, by May 6, 2024.


Virtual Roundtable on Best Practices and Safe Handling of Ra-226


Join us on May 30, 2024, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Eastern) for the Virtual Roundtable on Best Practices and Safe Handling of Ra-226.

As interest in targeted alpha therapy grows, so has the demand for Ra-226 feedstock to produce these important alpha-emitters such as Ac-225, Ac-227/Th-227/Ra-223, Th-228/Ra-224/Pb-212, and Th-229. The physical properties of Ra-226 present unique and challenging handling requirements, particularly due to its decay daughter, radon-222.

The first 90 minutes of the roundtable will feature candid discussions on best practices, facility types, appropriate capabilities, and technical challenges with invited speakers from the international community. A Q&A session will immediately follow these discussions, with priority given to questions submitted at least a week ahead of the roundtable.
