Campus resource remains national attraction
The University of Missouri Research Reactor, MURR®, is a national resource and leader in the nuclear sciences field. For decades, MURR scientists and staff have been fighting cancer through research and collaboration with private industry. As a result, Quadramet® and TheraSpheres® are available to US cancer patients every week. In the past year, demand for TheraSpheres® reached new highs, and MURR is helping meet that need.
Besides grant dollars that flow directly to MURR, the center’s resources are at the core of more than $12 million in grant funding awarded to collaborating MU faculty. From preparing new scientists for materials research discoveries, to improving crop yields, to understanding development and interaction of ancient populations, to translating the treatment and cure of cancers in animal patients into effective therapy for human patients, research at MURR spans dozens of disciplines.
