Built and operated from its inception by SURA, the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (also know as Jefferson Laboratory, or simply JLab) is the premier international research center for detailed studies of the structure of protons and neutrons within the nucleus.

SURA and JLab are participants in the Applied Research Center, whose mission includes support of private-public partnerships and university research to explore applications of light source technologies derived from JLab research.

The JLab facilities and dedicated researchers annually attract nearly 2,000 visiting scientists from the United States and abroad to plan or conduct hundreds of experiments in its three research halls. Additionally, the advances in accelerator technologies made by scientists at Jefferson Lab, including superconducting radio frequency (RF) technology, have enabled a host of new opportunities in the field.

Not only scientists benefit from the knowledge gained from basic research at JLab; students, teachers, and the general public profit as well. Researchers at Jefferson Lab train tomorrow’s scientific leaders by demonstrating how to do science and communicate its value. Learning problem-solving skills, teamwork and dedication is helping today’s students in their quest to build their own future careers.
