IU reorganizes nuclear complex to med school oversight

Indiana University is reorganizing its Cyclotron Facility to shift oversight of the nuclear complex to its School of Medicine.

The Bloomington campus’ vice provost for research previously had overseen the cyclotron, which treats cancer patients
with proton therapy.

The reorganization will also create a new physics research center. But the plan announced
this seek will cost about 15 percent of the Cyclotron Facility’s 130 staff members their jobs.

IU spokesman Larry
MacIntyre says IU will try to find other university jobs for those employees. He says the reorganization was in the works
long before Gov. Mitch Daniels ordered the state’s public universities to cut $150 million in spending due to tax revenue
shortfalls.
