The University of Wisconsin Medical Radiation Research Center (UWMRRC) is a non-profit education and research-oriented service laboratory. The UWMRRC is part of the Medical Physics Department at the UW Madison and is the only non-government research program dedicated to radiation metrology. Comprehensive calibration services are provided for most radiation measurement instrumentation utilized in the medical or health physics community.
The UWMRRC has three primary objectives: 1) Educate and train graduate students in the Medical Physics Department, 2) Conduct research in ionizing radiation metrology, 3) Provide accurate and precise calibrations for radiation measurement instrumentation and sources.

The University of Wisconsin Medical Radiation Research Center (UWMRRC) trains students in the Medical Physics Department at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. For general questions about applying for graduate studies in medical physics, please visit the medical physics application information page.
UWMRRC Graduate Students are supported through the UWRCL's calibration service fees and research contracts. We invite you to browse the projects and the students working on them. Feel free to contact the students via e-mail if you have any questions.
The UWRMM is now offering an ADW Linac Output verification TLD service for photons and electrons. Refer to AppNote 10-01 for more information. This service is an additional selection on the RMM order form.
HAZMAT-rated equipment received by the lab in non-compliant shipping containers will be subject to a $75 fee to cover the increased cost of providing HAZMAT-approved transport packaging and processing.
