Michigan State University is establishing the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) as a scientific user facility for the Office of Nuclear Physics in the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC)

FRIB’s nuclear science program will enable scientists to make discoveries about the properties of rare isotopes, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions, and applications for society, including in medicine, homeland security, and industry.

Additionally, FRIB’s accelerator science and engineering program will train the next generation of accelerator scientists and engineers to fulfill critical workforce needs in physics and engineering of large accelerators, superconducting radio frequency accelerator physics and engineering, radio frequency power engineering and large-scale cryogenic systems.
