General Lab Information


This workshop provides an opportunity for Brookhaven Lab's Nuclear and Particle Physics Directorate to share the on-going research programs and projects in nuclear and particle physics, isotope research and production program, and various programs at the operating facilities with faculty and students from Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) for exploration of future research collaborations.

We will also share our experience with the current student programs for STEM workforce development. MSI faculty can present their research interest and plans for strengthening STEM workforce development with Brookhaven National Laboratory.
