Antiprotons as probe for nuclear studies with short-lived isotopes remain unexploited despite past pioneer works at CERN/LEAR and Brookhaven. Antiprotons may represent a unique probe sensitive to the ratio of neutron and proton densities at annihilation site, i.e. in the tail of the nuclear density. Realising antiproton capture from short-lived nuclei is the objective of a new project named PUMA (antiProton Unstable Matter Annihilation) which will be introduced.
