MSU trustees tour FRIB

On 10 August, Michigan State University Board of Trustees members Renee Knake Jefferson and Rema Vassar visited FRIB.

FRIB Laboratory Director Thomas Glasmacher and Chief Administrative Officer BJ Abrams hosted trustees Knake Jefferson and Vassar during their visit. Glasmacher and Abrams led a tour of the facility and discussed FRIB’s history, progress, science, and technology with the trustees along the way.

Michigan State University (MSU) establishes and operates FRIB as a user facility for the Office of Nuclear Physics in the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science. Hosting the most powerful heavy-ion accelerator, FRIB will enable scientists to make discoveries about the properties of rare isotopes in order to better understand the physics of nuclei, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions, and applications for society, including in medicine, homeland security, and industry.
