Oak Ridge, Tennessee 1943 – Present

As a part of the Manhattan Project, the mission of the laboratory (previously named Clinton Laboratories or X-10) was to develop and test the experimental Graphite Reactor. ORNL continued on to design and build many reactors, developing and participating in countless nuclear materials reprocessing methods. From the 1960s to 1990s ORNL’s mission evolved to pioneer genetics research and the biological effects of radiation, ecological research regarding environmental effects, the safety of nuclear power plants, and alternative energy. The lab continues to be synonymous with atomic energy and cutting-edge science.
