Title of Collaborative Activity:

Office of Science and Technology Mo99 Stakeholders Working Group

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The purpose of this working group is to coordinate the efforts of multiple stakeholders (Department of State, Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Health and Human Services, private sector) to establish a stable, long-term domestic supply of Mo99 (molybdenum-99) for medical purposes. Such a supply needs to be consistent with current international goals (to which the US is an active participant) of reduction in the use of high-enriched uranium in all reactors, including Mo99 production facilities, as well as full cost recovery solutions. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) staff attend stakeholders workshops, the last was held in the Spring of 2018.
