The symposium will address the following topics: 
-Trends in global demand and supply for Mo-99 and associated medical isotopes.
-Prospects and approaches for developing new global supplies of Mo-99 and associated medical isotopes.
-Technical, regulatory, economic, and policy considerations for producing Mo-99 and associated medical isotopes for global markets using uranium-fission and other processes.
