Nuclear Physics Group
Academic Unit: Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences
Colombian Ministry of Science
We aim to promote the improvement of research activities in the context of the nuclear physics–computational physics interface, carried out at the Institute of Physics.
We aim to support a doctoral and master’s degree-level program in the Universidad de Antioquia Institute of Physics.
We aim to consolidate an alliance with a hospital or university-based nuclear medicine group, to promote nuclear medicine education and research.
We are willing to generate the appropriate conditions for creating a nuclear physics laboratory for research and education purposes.
