Over the last three years we have developed a very robust nuclear and radiochemistry program at The University of Texas at
Austin. The cornerstone of support was the DOE Radiochemistry Educational Award Program (REAP) that was awarded from 2002–2005.
A second award for the period of 2005–2008 was just received. This award has enabled us to support many educational activities
from vanguard classroom instruction, to laboratory enhancements, to research activities at the graduate and undergraduate
levels. Both traditional radiochemistry and advanced topics in nuclear instrumentation have been supported. Various DOE university
programs, national lab funding and IAEA fellowship grants, have allowed the Nuclear and Radiation Engineering Program at the
University of Texas to be at the forefront of nuclear and radiochemistry educational and research activities and help secure
the next generation of needed expertise.
