Radioactive materials are a necessary part of research at Penn State and are sometimes used with chemicals or bio materials. The possession, use, and disposal of these materials are strictly regulated by Federal and Pennsylvania regulations. The radiation protection program information provide here will assist you in obtaining an authorization to use radiation or radioactive materials and to manage your sources and materials.
As a service to other radiation safety professionals, Penn State hosts an annual conference to share and collaborate with our colleagues. For more information, see Annual Radiation Safety Roundtable.
