Department Update

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health's Radiation Control Program was on campus for 2 days in January to inspect Harvard's Radioactive Material License. After inspecting records, auditing laboratories, and interviewing material users, they were happy with the program here. We passed with no-violations. Congratulations to all radioactive materials users for maintaining excellent safety standards!
