Welcome to the Burns Research Laboratory!

The Burns lab works at the intersection of radiochemistry, inorganic chemistry, materials science and nanotechnology. We are interested in taking advantage of the nuclear property of radioactive decay to help address problems spanning from radiopharmaceuticals to nuclear power. In particular, our focus is on 1) the investigation into emerging radioisotopes for medical applications, 2) the design of nanomaterials for radiopharmaceuticals, and 3) the development of new technologies for used nuclear fuel recycling.
