Due to health and safety concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic and to minimize the risk to students, the Nuclear Forensics Undergraduate Summer 2020 School (NFUSS) Program is suspending all new selections/appointments, effective immediately. This means that the program is cancelled for 2020.
We apologize for any inconvenience this decision may cause. If you have any questions, please contact us at ORNLedu@orau.org.
Nuclear forensics involves examining materials recovered from radiological and nuclear events of an illicit or hostile nature in order to determine their character and origin. Nuclear forensics conclusions, combined with information from law enforcement investigation and intelligence, help identify those responsible for planned and actual attacks.
