In partnership with Decatur Memorial Hospital (DMH) and Zevacor Molecular, Millikin will add a clinical nuclear science program beginning this fall.
    
Through the new program, upper-level biology, chemistry and physics majors will be provided with another pathway to science careers. In addition to formal course work, students will learn through internships and performance-learning experiences while working with 16 and 70 MeV cyclotrons and nuclear medicine programs at both Zevacor and DMH.
    
Zevacor Molecular in Noblesville, Ind., is providing funding for a research fellowship in summer 2016, including a $3,000 stipend and a $2,000 housing allowance. DMH is also providing a summer research fellowship, including a $3,000 stipend. Millikin will provide housing for the student during that summer.

“The clinical nuclear science program at Millikin is a unique opportunity for students to help achieve successful science careers,” said Dr. David Horn, associate professor of biology.
    
“Millikin students will gain a wide range of experiences from the production of nuclear isotopes to examining their use in patients.”
