Twenty-five Year 10 girls from Sutherland Shire schools have been given a special insight into what it would be like to be a scientist, spending two days shadowing the work of some of Australia’s brightest young scientists at Lucas Heights.
Under the agreement, ANSTO, operating the Synchrotron and other national research facilities, agreed to help with “in-kind support to investigate the epidemiology of CKDu.”
Study investigated the use of a beam of positron-emitting radionuclides for the precise delivery of non-invasive and highly conformal radiotherapy.
Australia’s leading researchers in nuclear science and technology were recognised for their outstanding contribution to science last week at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) Awards in Nuclear Science and Technology presentation dinner.
ANSTO Board member Professor Andrew Scott has been made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM), in the 2017 Australia Day honours list. Also included in the list were Professor Vijay Kumar, awarded a Member of the Order of Australia (AM), and Clinical Professor Robert Howman-Giles, who received a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM).
Australia’s state-of-the-art multi-purpose nuclear reactor has operated for more than 300 days at full power for a second consecutive year with over 99% reliability.
Australia is making a significant global contribution by stepping up to help prevent a shortfall in world nuclear medicine supplies with two projects worth about $170 million.
A rare, exciting opportunity is open for engineering graduates at ANSTO's Lucas Heights campus in south Sydney.
ANSTO’s Radionuclide Metrology group will launch a mobile calibration service pilot project for Australian cyclotrons that produce short-lived PET radiopharmaceuticals such as F-18 FDG (fluorodeoxyglucose).
Let's finish looking behind the scenes on a typical day in the operation of the OPAL reactor and meet some of the people who work there.
