The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams at Michigan State University is the preeminent user facility of its type in the world. Its impact will be felt worldwide by the science community and the public.
In early 2022, MSU, home to the nation’s top nuclear physics graduate program, will open the doors to the facility and welcome scientists from around the globe to study rare isotopes — different versions of elements that will advance both our understanding of the universe and the creation of applications for society in areas like astrophysics, medicine and national security.
It will also serve as a training ground for the diverse group of scientists and discoverers of tomorrow.
“As scientists, we also have the duty to open doors for those who don’t have opportunity and access,” says Paul Guèye, an associate professor of nuclear physics at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams and in MSU’s Department of Physics and Astronomy. "FRIB will become the best place to study rare isotopes. It will open the doorways that we have never seen before."
