"25(+) Years of Nuclear and Particle Physics Research at VU: A look backward and a look forward"

Dr. Don Koetke, Department of Physics & Astronomy, Valparaiso University 

For more than 25 years there has been an active and funded experimental research program at VU to study fundamental nuclear and particle physics. Both faculty and students have participated in  world-class experiments, helping to build these experiment, collect  data at national and international accelerator and reactor facilities and analyze these data to learn more about nature's fundamental building blocks. We will have a look back at these experiments and a speculative look into the future.
