The field of immunotherapy has been historically dominated by macromolecular biologic treatments, including monoclonal antibodies, cytokines, and heat-inactivated bacteria. Recent advances in the field have indicated that small molecule immunostimulants can induce anti-cancer and anti-bacterial immunity, and several of these compounds (imiquimod, monophosphoryl lipid A) have acquired FDA approval for the treatment of various types of cancer.

Nuclear forensic analysis is a necessary discipline for the enforcement of the United States foreign policies of nuclear deterrence and non-proliferation. As the global situation continues to evolve, further refinement of the methods used by this discipline is necessary to ensure swift and accurate source attribution of nuclear materials. Surrogate nuclear material serves as a valuable tool for testing and improving analytical procedures and operational procedures, particularly regarding post-detonation nuclear forensic analysis.
