ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Isotopes & Radiation
Members are devoted to applying nuclear science and engineering technologies involving isotopes, radiation applications, and associated equipment in scientific research, development, and industrial processes. Their interests lie primarily in education, industrial uses, biology, medicine, and health physics. Division committees include Analytical Applications of Isotopes and Radiation, Biology and Medicine, Radiation Applications, Radiation Sources and Detection, and Thermal Power Sources.

The second Advances in Nuclear Nonproliferation Technology and Policy Conference (ANTPC) 2018 is rescheduled to take place
during the ANS Winter Meeting due to widespread flooding following Hurricane Florence. This Meeting is co-sponsored by
the American Nuclear Society's Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy and Fuel Cycle Waste Management Divisions. The goal is to
stimulate conversation among nuclear science researchers, facilities operators, and policy makers and provide a venue for
discussions on relevant policy and technical needs in nonproliferation.
