Fiscal Year 2010: No Current Data Available Fiscal Year 2011: Office of Science research programs, which complement DOE's applied missions in energy resources, environmental quality, and national security, have been at the forefront of modern scientific advances and have expanded the frontiers of basic scientific knowledge. Results and accomplishments of basic research performed under these programs are reported in open scientific literature. University research programs often support graduate students who assist principal investigators with research projects. Student support on basic science research projects has helped to train the future scientific talent in DOE supported science areas such as materials science, chemistry, mathematics, general life sciences, geosciences, genetics, radiation biology, ecology, nuclear medicine, and high energy and nuclear physics.
