During the D-T campaign on TFTR, safe and successful operation has been demonstrated with tritium fuel enabling a broad range of physics studies. Transport studies have focused on the formation of internal transport barriers in the enhanced reversed shear regime. Current profile modification has been employed to study MHD stability in both reversed shear and high li discharges. Several important alpha physics topics have been studied including the confinement and loss of alpha particles in both quiescent and MHD active discharges and the effect of alpha-particle heating and alpha-particle destabilization of TAE modes. Plans for future experiments are being discussed.
