Facility for Rare Isotope Beams


IGEN Engagement

[Michigan State University's] Facility for Rare Isotope Beams lab, which is an IGEN Partner, regularly participates in IGEN meetings and programs like the Professional Networking Group, a private LinkedIn Group which is designed to connect graduate students with national labs representatives.

FRIB is committed to developing a pipeline for UREM students to transition into professional careers and to attend to their professional development. As such, we are developing materials for training of their research mentors, and constructing logistic guidelines to make students known to hiring managers and researchers.

About the Lab

The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) is a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC) user facility. FRIB is funded by the DOE-SC, MSU and the State of Michigan. Supporting the mission of the Office of Nuclear Physics in DOE-SC, FRIB will enable scientists to make discoveries about the properties of rare isotopes (that is, short-lived nuclei not normally found on Earth), nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions, and applications for society, including in medicine, homeland security, and industry.
