Research is the backbone of the development of atomic energy. While the development of atomic energy also depends upon a host of technological improvements and upon the strength of industrial development and management, the guidance of research is a necessary requirement. Today, the research carried on under the atomic energy project ranges through physics, chemistry, metallurgy, the biological sciences, medicine, and most of the branches of engineering. The shortage of trained scientific and technical personnel, due at least in part to these greatly expanded activities, has prompted the Atomic Energy Commission to establish fellowship programs in the physical sciences and in biology and medicine and to set up technical training programs in radiation effects and the use of radio-active isotopes.
