* The MARIA reactor stands as a unique and pivotal research facility, both in Poland and globally. Its paramount significance extends to public health, economic impact, and scientific advancements. This water and beryllium moderated high flux pool-type reactor, featuring a graphite reflector and pressurized channels housing concentric six-tube assemblies of fuel elements, plays a crucial role as a producer of radiopharmaceuticals. The medical radioisotopes generated by MARIA contribute significantly to various medical research projects. The reactor's continued operation is vital, with around 380,000 nuclear medicine procedures conducted annually in Poland alone, underscoring its indispensable role in public health and medicine. On a global scale, MARIA covers approximately 12-15% of the world's supply of molybdenum-99, benefiting around 17 million people who rely on products based on its radioisotopes.

** The Materials Research Lab (LBM) carries out scientific and diagnostic work on structural materials and their welded joints using destructive and non-destructive testing methods, including metallographic, mechanical and thermal testing. The LBM laboratory specialises in studying the effects of temperature, corrosive environment and radiation, which affect the strength of materials, reducing the so-called „lifetime” of structural components. LBM includes the Laboratory for Structural, Corrosion and Chemical Testing, the Laboratory of Mechanical Testing, the Laboratory of Non-Destructive Testing and the Work of Hot Chambers consisting of a set of 12 lead chambers with a maximum shielding of 100 Ci (3.7 × 1012 Bq), equipped with appropriate technological installations and connected to each other by a transport tunnel.
