Due to a shortage of nuclear scientist in the U.S., MU recently received $3 million from the National Science Foundation to continue to train future generations of scientists with an emphasis on neutron scattering experiment, according to an MU news release.

According to the release, the funding award comes from the NSF’s Interactive Graduate Education and Research Traineeship Program.

“MU’s Research Reactor (MURR) is a unique facility on MU’s campus that gives us a fantastic opportunity for training scientists to use the current neutron scattering techniques,” Haskell Taub, a professor of physics in the College of Arts and Science and director of the training program, said in the release.
