Spun from MSU's NSCL, Lansing-based Niowave is recognized as an international medical isotopes leader and is one of four companies actively manufacturing medical isotopes in the US. MSU's leading nuclear physics program is fundamentally strong due to a long history and commitment to research and leading facilities including:
- #1 Ranked Nuclear Physics program in the US (US News and World Report)
- National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (since 1978)
- Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), scheduled for completion in 2021
The $770 million investment in FRIB will result in the world's next great nuclear research center including the most powerful machine of its type in the world, revolutionizing the way nuclear research is conducted and expediting new discoveries and breakthroughs.
