"The production of key radioisotopes is important to our nation’s medical, industrial and scientific infrastructure. Well-educated, experienced scientists are necessary to produce high-quality isotopes. Exceptional workforce development and excellent research are a natural pairing. It is imperative to recruit widely and educate effectively to ensure the continued availability of important isotopes."
Dr. Sherry J. Yennello, Texas A&M Regents Professor of Chemistry and Cyclotron Institute Director
