Life Sciences
  • Radiopharmaceutical Research
    The radiopharmaceutical research group at MURR focuses on development of radioisotopes for use in detecting and treating cancer and other chronic human diseases.  

  • Trace Element Epidemiology
    Epidemiology is the study of the factors, frequency, mode of transmission, evolution and implementation of ways to prevent disease.  

  • Boron Neutron Capture Therapy
    Boron Neutron Capture Therapy or BNCT, is based on a binary, or two-component method of generating cytotoxic radiation for cancer therapy.

  • Radioisotope Tracers
    Since radioactivity was discovered, radioactive isotopes have been used as tools with which to gain a better understanding of the chemistry of living systems.
