FRIB Users Organization exceeds 1,000 members
Membership of FRIB Users Organization (FRIBUO) jumped from 875 to more than 1,000 following votes in November to merge the NSCL User Group and FRIB Theory Users Group with FRIBUO.
FRIBUO's members are planning to conduct scientific research at FRIB and are developing new technology for nuclear science research. There are more than 20 working groups focused on experimental equipment in the organization, and FRIBUO has conducted several meetings and workshops since May 2009 to prepare for scientific discoveries when FRIB turns on.
