Fighting with Viruses

Viruses don’t always kill their microbial hosts. In many cases, they develop a mutually beneficial relationship: the virus establishes itself inside the microbe and, in return, grants its host immunity against attack by similar viruses.

New Elements

In the world of nuclear physics, the data acquisition technology developed by UT physicist Robert Grzywacz and his colleagues at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is a game changer.

Body of Work

For most people, murder, arson, and violent crime are the stuff of news stories and urban legend. But our researchers who specialize in forensic work stare down death and sift through the ashes to help law enforcement solve mysteries and bring justice to victims.

Partners to the Core

UT and Oak Ridge National Laboratory are both known for their nuclear engineering prowess, but their integral relationship is much deeper and broader, impacting many areas of the two institutions.
