Protein shows potential to accelerate cancer therapy research and application
Scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Pennsylvania State University have demonstrated that a natural protein found bonded to rare earth elements can be recovered and used as a tool to purify and effectively manage radioactive metals that show promise for cancer therapy and the detection of illicit nuclear activities.
The American Nuclear Society is the product of its membership and communities, one of which cannot exist without the other. Communities allow ANS members to amplify their research, networks, ideas, relationships, themselves, and many other important facets of an ANS member’s life.
Specialized technical and working groups that allow members to pursue connections and advancement within unique areas of study or work.
Local Sections/Plant Branches
Local organizations that allow members to interact with other members and learn about relevant issues in their region.
University-based organizations that open the doors of membership to the next generation of ANS members and helps them prepare for their futures.
Please send all information updates and/or additions regarding Professional Divisions, Local Sections, Student Sections, or Plant Branches to Governance Services.
