University of Rochester Atomic Energy Project
University of Rochester is a DOE facility for 1943-1986 so workers are eligible to file for Part B and Part E claims.
University of Rochester has a Special Exposure Cohort which covers all workers with specific cancers and at least 250 days of employment for September 1, 1943-October 30, 1971.
Although much of the early theoretical and experimental work that led to development of the first nuclear weapon was accomplished outside the United States, American researchers made a number of fundamental contributions as well. Prior to 1942, the University of Rochester was one of the institutions that contributed to early nuclear physics research in the United States. The university was responsible for more than a hundred projects in chemistry, physics, biology, medicine and psychology. During the Manhattan Project, it had major responsibility for the medical aspects of the bomb program. After the war, Rochester received an AEC contract to operate the Atomic Energy Project (AEP), which focused on the biomedical aspects of nuclear energy. The University of Rochester also received funding to study the pathology and toxicology of beryllium as well as to study the analytical chemistry of micro-quantities.
DOE Legacy Management has a webpage for University of Rochester since it was considered for FUSRAP.
DOL provides Part B and Part E statistics for University of Rochester as well as a Site Exposure Matrix.
