13 Space nuclear research The Center for Space Nuclear Research is operated by the Universities Space Research Association USRA and INL. The center is a focus for engaging university research scientists in development of advanced space nuclear systems such as power and propulsion systems and radioisotope thermal generators. The centers Next Degree Program enables students with a B.S. or M.S. in an engineering or physical science field to work half time at the center while pursuing their next degree at the nearby Idaho State University University of Idaho extension campus. Nuclear medicine research Boron Neutron Capture Therapy is a promising experimental cancer treatment that could be the best option for certain aggressive types of tumors. INL is helping the University of Missouri design an experimental neutronic characterization of a new facility for Boron Neutron Capture Therapy research at the universitys research reactor. The partnership is a continuation of INLs longstanding collaboration with the Division of Radiation Pathology of the National Atomic Energy Commission of Argentina.
