Missions of the laboratory

 
  • OPERATION OF HIGH_ENERGY AND HIGH INTENSITY CYCLOTRON BASED IN NANTES AND THE ASSOCIATED LABORATORIES FOR RESEARCH MAINLY FOCUSED ON NUCLEAR MEDICINE AND RADIOCHEMISTRY. THESE TWO THEMES ARE NOT EXCLUSIVE TO OTHER APPLICATIONS OF THE BEAMS GENERATED BY THE CYCLOTRON

  • HOSTING RESEARCHERS IN THE THEMES METIONED IN THE PRECEDING PARAGRAPH

  • SERVICES FOR HOSPITAL, RESEARCH INSTITUTIONS, AS WELL AS INDUSTRIAL PARTNERS. IT INCLUDES THE PROVISION OF RADIONUCLIDES AND/OR THE USING OF THEIR OF LABS AND APPARATUS AVAILABLE WITHIN THE FACILITY

  • TRAINING OF STUDENT AND WORKERS RELATED TO THE USE OT THE MACHINE OR ITS ENVIRONMENT
