The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) is the home of nuclear science and technology in Australia. ANSTO is one of Australia’s largest public research organisations and custodian of much of our country’s landmark and national research infrastructure, including the Open Pool Australian Light-water (OPAL) multi-purpose reactor, the Australian Synchrotron, the Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering (ACNS) and the Centre for Accelerator Science (CAS).

More than 500 scientists, engineers and technicians work at ANSTO to answer the most important questions society faces today; whether in the area of human health, the environment or providing innovation for industry.

ANSTO’s international collaborations, including partnerships with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and the Shanghai Institute for Applied Physics, ensure Australian scientists are connected to a global network of experts and research projects.

As part of enabling a strong national collaborative network, ANSTO is connected with all Australian and New Zealand universities through the Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering (AINSE), providing researchers access to Australia’s nuclear science, technology and engineering expertise and infrastructure.

The research and educational partnership between ANSTO and The University of Sydney is one example of a cooperative project run by ANSTO. Located at Camperdown, Sydney, the Brain and Mind Research Institute (BMRI) is a dedicated medical research cyclotron and radiochemistry facility that forms part of the National Imaging Facility (NIF) network. The main focus for the collaboration is to develop new radiopharmaceuticals, instruments and scientific methods that extend the potential applications of molecular imaging in the future.

ANSTO also has long term strategic partnerships with the Australian National University, Monash University and University of Western Sydney.
