U.S. Transuranium and Uranium Registries Graduate Research
Graduate Students utilize USTUR data
USTUR contains a wealth of materials that provide graduate students with meaningful data for dissertation topics on subjects such as: biokinetic modeling, bioassay analyses, 3-dimensional computational voxel phantoms, and other topics relevant to internal dosimetry. We desire to share our unique dataset with these students and to provide feedback that will help to shape them into leading scientists.
The Registries has worked closely with students from both Washington State University and Idaho State University. Most recently, a PhD student from WSU’s College of Pharmacy, Sara Dumit, completed her PhD. Ms. Dumit’s research focused on modelling bioassay and chelation data from USTUR Registrants who had documented intakes of plutonium.
