ORAU research project seeks to improve accuracy of radiation dose calculations
Researchers at ORAU are working to make radiation dose reconstruction more accurate by removing the limits built in to SOURCES-4C code, which helps calculate radiation dose.
Research at REAC/TS focuses on field-deployable detection tools for radiation medical accidents
Through ORAU's Visiting Faculty Research Program, LSU student Tony Davila investigated various methods by which the depth of nuclear contaminants in human tissue can be determined to help surgeons more easily remove them without damaging surrounding tissue, blood vessels or muscle mass.
Radiation safety & health physics training
ORAU also offers some of the best radiation safety and health physics training available in the United States at our Oak Ridge, Tenn., facility. Whether you are just starting your career in the health physics field and want to learn in a hands-on, classroom environment, or are a seasoned professional who needs a refresher or way to develop new skills, Professional Training Programs has a course for you!

Participants will be invited to discuss the latest developments regarding communication with the public in a nuclear or radiological emergency in order to further strengthen the preparedness of States and of the international community.
Come talk to us about public health and healthcare preparedness capabilities
Come talk to us about public health and healthcare preparednes at the ORAU booth at the 2019 NACCHO Preparedness Summit March 26-29, 2019 in St. Louis.
The Preparedness Summit is the first and longest running national conference on public health preparedness. The Summit convenes a wide array of partners; presenting new research findings, sharing tools and resources and providing a variety of opportunities for attendees to learn how to implement model practices that enhance the nation’s capabilities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters and other emergencies.
Since 1946, one thing has been our focus—our customers' missions.
