The Bredesen Center unites the scientific resources of University of Tennessee and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LABORATORY
National labs are distinguished by their ability to assemble large teams of experts from a variety of scientific and technical disciplines to tackle compelling national problems. They also design, build, and operate powerful scientific facilities that are available to the international research community.
Oak Ridge is the most diverse of the Department of Energy’s 17 national laboratories, providing leadership in energy research and technology, advanced materials, nuclear science and engineering, neutron science, isotope production, national security, environmental and biological sciences, and high-performance computing.
Resources like these enable the US to compete in what we call “Big Science” and they empower our researchers to pursue knowledge that’s fundamental to solving some of our world’s greatest challenges.
