Returning the Radio to Chemistry: Integrating Radiochemistry into a PhD Program

The National Science Foundation has funded a flagship Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) called “Returning the Radio to Chemistry: Integrating Radiochemistry into a PhD Program.” This NSF grant will support 15 PhD candidates in radiochemistry, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is fortunate to be a partner with Hunter College in this exciting program. The long-range vision of the program is to stimulate a resurgence of interest in radiochemistry among PhD students in chemistry and thereby produce more scientists well versed in the fundamentals and applications of radioactive elements and compounds. A modern radiochemistry curriculum has been designed and implemented to attract students and serve as a model for other PhD-granting institutions.
