ORAU's expertise in radiation science and dosimetry is backed by decades of support to national missions in radiation dose reconstruction and radiological emergency response. Whether it's providing rapid response to radiation emergencies, conducting dose reconstruction of former workers or educating professionals in the radiation sciences, ORAU has been an active contributor to the radiation science and dosimetry fields for more than 40 years.
ORAU has a long history of successful partnerships with corporations and government agencies, many of which have led to discoveries that address some of our nation’s most pressing challenges in the radiation sciences. We are looking to partner with universities and industry to expand the body of knowledge in these important fields. Opportunities for research projects exist for improving cytogenetic biodosimetry techniques, discovering advances in radiation emergency response, microdosimetry of systemic and targeted radiotherapies, and supporting space exploration, such as optimizing shielding thickness and minimizing secondary radiation produced in shielding.
