Turning bombs into medicine.
At SHINE and as a SHINE employee we’re driven by a passion for making the world a better place. By developing a 100% LEU alternative to traditional HEU-based medical isotope production, we’re ensuring a safer world for future generations. We strongly believe that weapons-grade uranium has no place in the civilian industry. LEU-only, domestic production of medical isotopes eliminates the historical conflict between the health and security of Americans. Read more about HEU vs LEU.
In fact, the LEU for the SHINE manufacturing facility comes from down-blended nuclear weapons, meaning we literally turn former bombs into medicine.
And unlike other new production methods, the SHINE process does not rely on a nuclear reactor. This simplification results in hundreds of times less nuclear waste created per procedure we enable.
The future of nuclear.
Tired of maintenance and decommissioning projects? SHINE is a different kind of nuclear company– one that will have a fully operational facility by 2020. With the first NRC construction permit issued since 1985, we are redefining what it means to work in nuclear. Small and nimble, we are designing and building the infrastructure that will carry the U.S. nuclear medicine industry into the next half century.
A word of warning: SHINE isn’t for everyone. As a start-up company, our work is bold and fast-paced. We are global leaders in our field, doing what no one has done before. Close-knit and ambitious, we will challenge you to be your best self.
SHINE offers a great opportunity for a individual to contribute to a very unique mission that not only impacts the community but also the world.
Working at SHINE is like working with a team of 57 Sheldons from the Big Bang Theory without as much laugh track.
