From its proud home in Columbia, Missouri, the University of Missouri is one of the most important and reliable producers of medical isotopes for treating cancer in the United States.
The University of Missouri Research Reactor, known as MURR, is the only U.S. producer of four critical medical isotopes. Researchers at MURR create radioisotopes that are used in the treatment of liver, thyroid, pancreatic and prostate cancers. These are lifesaving treatments that those with cancer desperately need.
