The University of Missouri hosted a groundbreaking ceremony today for a 47,000-square-foot addition to the MU Research Reactor (MURR) facility.
Dubbed “MURR West,” the new $20 million, three-story addition to the existing MURR North Building will expand the facility’s research and medical isotope production space to offer researchers and their students more resources to explore nuclear science and discover new treatments that provide benefits to people around the country and the world.
“The new MURR West facility will drive even more research and development that will improve and save lives,” said Mun Choi, president of the University of Missouri. “This facility will significantly increase radioisotope productions to treat citizens of Missouri and the nation.”
