  1. 1. 2016 – ORISE coordinated peer review services, supporting more than $226.6 million in federal funding awards, with a majority stemming from DOE's Office of Science. THE MID 2010s Number of medical professionals and emergency management personnel trained annually in radiological emergency response Number of processor hours DOE granted for research projects following ORISE peer review process 6,000 5.78 billion 20162016 2016 20162014-2016 1995-1997 1998-1999 2000- 2003- 2006-2009 2010-2013 2016 – Peer review specialists through ORISE supported DOE’s Office of Science in determining the allocation of 5.78 billion processor hours at Oak Ridge and Argonne National Laboratories through its Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) Program. This program grants members of the scientific community access to some of the world’s fastest supercomputers for large-scale research projects. 2016 – REAC/TS celebrated its 40th anniversary. During this time, its global calls for assistance have included major radiation incidents such as Three Mile Island (1979), Chernobyl (1986) and Fukushima (2011). Annually, REAC/TS staff reaches nearly 6,000 medical professionals and emergency management personnel around the world through courses, meetings, workshops and conferences featuring highly specialized radiation emergency medicine education. 2016 – In a competitive bid, DOE selected ORAU to continue to manage ORISE with a new, up-to-10-year contract. Dr. William J. (Jim) Vosburg was named director of ORISE. 2016 – Installation of a new multi-channel automated pipette system at the ORISE Beryllium Testing Laboratory improved efficiency by reducing the manual part of processing beryllium lymphocyte proliferation tests. The laboratory performs nearly 5,000 such tests each year. 2016 – ORISE placed 9,899 participants into workforce development programs, many of which included research experiences and internships at national laboratories. The events along this timeline demonstrate how DOE responded to and ORISE supported key national priorities. Accomplishments addressed needs in or strengthened opportunities for: Global Leadership in Science National and Nuclear Security Worker and Public Health Energy and Environmental Stewardship Knowledge and Workforce Development Radiation and Operational Safety Operational Excellence and Efficiencies International Emergency Response ORAU awarded another five-year contract from DOE to manage ORISE REAC/TS celebrated its 40th anniversary
