"Dream Team" Chosen to Study Basic Science of Nuclear Waste

Department of Energy selects PNNL-led team

July 2016

To accelerate the scientific breakthroughs needed to support the Department of Energy's mission to clean up readioactive waste from World War II and the Cold War, four new Energy Frontier Research Centers have been formed. Energy Secretary Moniz announced that up to $40 million dollars will go to fund the four centers for up to four years. DOE's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will lead one center called IDREAM, which stands for Interfacial Dynamics in Radioactive Environments and Materials.
