This laboratory provides unique and highly specialized research opportunities in the areas of subatomic physics, radiobiology, radioisotope research and development, materials research, and more. In addition, iThemba LABS has drawn up joint training programmes and collaboration agreements with other research labs and Higher Education Institutions as a way of helping advance the human capital development initiative of the South African government. One such programmes is the iThemba LABS Bursary Programme.

With funding from the National Research Foundation, iThemba LABS operates two sites. These research facilities are located in Gauteng and Western Cape and have the capability to provide:
