The WSU-PNNL Nuclear Science and Technology Institute is a joint research collaboration of Washington State University and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
Our mission: Understand and control how materials evolve in radiation environments—to prevent the use of illicit nuclear materials, resolve issues in nuclear waste management, and advance next-generation nuclear energy.
Our vision: To be a recognized leader in education, multidisciplinary research, and innovation in nuclear science and technology; and to strengthen the regional workforce and attract top scientific talent to the Northwest.
The WSU-PNNL Nuclear Science and Technology Institute offers researchers and students access to some of the world's most advanced analytical and characterization instrumentation integrated with state-of-the art computational facilities. The Institute also enables participants to study radiation-induced processes across length and time-scales, as well as the opportunity to collaborate with nationally recognized experts in nuclear science and engineering.
