The UNLV Transmutation Research Program was established in March 2001 as part of the national transmutation program (Global Nuclear Energy Partnership of the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy) to develop the technologies necessary for the ecological and economical treatment of spent nuclear fuel.

The primary role of the UNLV program in the national effort is the training of post-doctoral fellows and graduate and undergraduate students in nuclear engineering and other related fields to support the augmentation of the human infrastructure for transmutation technologies. However, the research conducted by UNLV faculty and students is also an integral part of the national research effort.

The Transmutation Sciences - Physics project supports work under the GNEP Reactors Campaign. It encompasses TRP 06 (Neutron Multiplicity Measurements of Target/Blanket Materials), TRP 07 (Development of Dose Coefficients for Radionuclides Produced in Spallation Targets) and TRP 27 (Reactor-Accelorator Coupled Experiments (RACE) Project).
