Critical Information for the Next Generation, Thanks to Alan Waltar and Jim Buelt

November 2004
Congratulations to Alan Waltar and Jim Buelt for their roles in establishing and expanding the Western Nuclear Science Alliance. The alliance brings together seven western universities and five national laboratories to advance the state of the art in nuclear science. It also seeks to attract students to high-demand nuclear fields, specifically, radiochemistry, neutron radiography, and nuclear engineering. ESTD’s Alan Waltar was instrumental in establishing the alliance. He has served on the advisory committee as PNNL’s representative since the alliance was founded in 2002. ETD’s Jim Buelt is now serving as PNNL’s representative on the alliance’s advisory board. Jim was instrumental in hosting the alliance’s radiochemistry forum at PNNL’s Richland campus in September of this year. Congratulations, again, Alan and Jim!
