SHINE founder and CEO Greg Piefer gives a toast at a Business After 5 event on Aug. 11.


On Aug. 11, we hosted a Business After 5 in collaboration with Forward Janesville. Nearly 200 community members joined us at our Janesville headquarters to participate in the networking event and to learn more about our recent progress.

One of the new elements we were able to roll out were virtual tours, which gave attendees a glimpse inside our medical isotope production facilities:

  • Take a look inside The Chrysalis, our large-scale medical isotope production facility, which will focus in the near-term on molybdenum-99 and is slated to receive its operating license from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission next year.
  • Take a look inside Cassiopeia, our large-scale production facility which will focus on lutetium-177, which we are currently producing at a small scale at Building One.

The Forward Janesville board of directors toured The Chrysalis, SHINE's large-scaled medical isotope production facility, on Aug. 11.

Earlier in the day, Forward Janesville’s board of directors toured The Chrysalis. And back at headquarters, we helped the larger group understand more about nuclear medicine and fusion. Founder and CEO Greg Piefer also offered a toast to the local community for its support, and encouraged attendees to continue giving their full effort toward solving important problems—no matter their role or industry.

“While we face unprecedented challenges right now, we’re also more capable than we have ever been before,” Piefer said.
