The Centre for Radiochemistry Research (CRR) at The University of Manchester is a UK centre of excellence providing a national focus for innovative, high-impact radiochemistry research.
We provide a key link between academia and the nuclear sector, with activities ranging from blue skies investigations to industry-ready development work. These are enhanced by our new role in the National Nuclear User Facility.
Our extensive network of partnerships and collaborations facilitates our aims:
- to conduct pioneering, world‑leading radiochemistry research;
- to educate and train future generations of radiochemists; and
- to improve public understanding of our fascinating and important research programmes.
We work with a range of organisations to deliver our research and training, including:
- Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council
- Los Alamos National Laboratory
- National Nuclear Laboratory
- Nuclear Decommissioning Authority
- Natural Environment Research Council
- Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
- Stellafield Ltd
