Early Career Research Program FY 2022
The DOE Office of Science is excited to announce it is accepting proposals for the 2022 DOE Office of Science Early Career Research Program to support the research of outstanding scientists early in their careers. 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…
PHYSOR Abstract Submissions Due September 30th!
Don't miss your chance to present your latest research on reactor-based isotope production at the International Conference on Physics of Reactors (PHYSOR) 2022 sponsored by the American Nuclear Society. Currently planned as an in-person event in Pittsburgh, PA, May 15–20, DOE Isotope Program researchers Susan Hogle and Julie Ezold from Oak Ridge…
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…
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…

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…
