The Seaborg Institute at Los Alamos integrates research programs, provides science focus, and enhances education on the chemical, physical, nuclear, and metallurgical properties of the light actinide elements, with a special emphasis on plutonium.

The Seaborg Institute serves as a center for the education and training of students, visiting scientists, and faculty at all educational levels. The Seaborg Institute actively facilitates the nucleation of ideas and formation of research teams for the Laboratory and the nation, targets specific funding sources, maintains support for Seaborg Postdoctoral Fellows and student researchers, and launches new nuclear science initiatives
