The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) will be a scientific user facility for the Office of Nuclear Physics in the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC). FRIB is funded by the DOE-SC, MSU and the State of Michigan. Supporting the mission of the Office of Nuclear Physics in DOE-SC, FRIB will enable scientists to make discoveries about the properties of rare isotopes (that is, short-lived nuclei not normally found on Earth), nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions, and applications for society, including in medicine, homeland security, and industry.
NSCL is one of the world’s flagship nuclear science research facilities. It is funded by the National Science Foundation to be a national user facility with a mission to provide beams of rare isotopes for researchers from around the world. Hundreds of users come to Michigan State University each year to take advantage of our facilities and explore the inner workings of atoms and their role in the universe.

We are committed in our mission to serve the scientific community and operate the NSCL in a way that lets researchers perform ground-breaking experiments. We are also committed to assist in preparation for the next great advance in nuclear science, the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, when it is completed after 2020. Along the way we are developing the tools for the next generation of particle accelerators and new applications of our technology for science and society. Education is a big part of what we do with over 150 Michigan State University undergraduate and graduate students involved in laboratory activities, plus many more from other institutions. We strive to do all this safely and in a way that is inclusive of a diverse and talented staff.
