Description: The Glenn T. Seaborg Institute for Transactinium Science (GTS-ITS) mission supports the long-term manpower and core competency needs of the defense-related and the environmental programs at LLNL. The importance of the GTS-ITS mission is intensified by the current and impending shortage of actinide experts. This sector continues to retire, leaving ever-widening gaps in the core capabilities of the programs and disciplines throughout the Laboratory and the nation. The GTS-ITS focus is to help the Laboratory fill these voids by educating and training the future generation of scientists with the knowledge and expertise required to meet the nation's changing needs in environmental protection and remediation, nuclear waste isolation, national security nuclear surveillance, nuclear energy and industrial applications of nuclear methods, and fundamental transactinium sciences.
