The Cosmic Ray Isotope Spectrometer (CRIS) instrument on the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) mission has been making high precision measurements of the isotopic and elemental composition of galactic cosmic rays over the past two years. These observations have been used to investigate a range of topics including: 1) the nucleosynthetic processes that produced the cosmic-ray source material, 2) the processes responsible for fractionation of the elements in this material, 3) the time that elapsed between nucleosynthesis and acceleration to high energies, and 4) the confinement time of cosmic rays in the Galaxy. Highlights from CRIS investigations reported to date are summarized.
