Staying Alive: Despite a three-decade decline, a few universities keep nuclear and radiochemistry going.
Dr. Ken Czerwinski: Chemistry Professor in Radiochemistry
The Radiochemistry Ph.D program at UNLV is an exciting place to be! With Nevada's unique relationship with nuclear activities, Las Vegas is emerging as the place to study the chemistry of the actinides, technetium and other radionuclides. Here, we have the resources and capabilities to perform novel experiments that help us to best explore, understand, and utilize the fundamental properties of radioisotopes.
We have projects with several universities, National and International laboratories, providing ample chances for travel and a full understanding of the world's radiochemistry field.
