Seizing Canada's Moment

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Minister of State (S&T) Ed Holder announced the release of an updated federal science, technology and innovation strategy, with a clear vision for Canadian excellence.

ARIEL Awarded for Engineering Excellence

Congratulations to the ARIEL team, Stantec Consulting Ltd., Applied Engineering Solutions Ltd., and Bush, Bohlman & Partners Ltd., recipients of the 2013 ACEC-BC’s Engineering Excellence Award of Merit.

ARIEL to Expand our Range of Isotopes

ARIEL will increase TRIUMF's capabilities for producing beams of rare isotopes. These isotopes will be used to study the nature of stars, where the elements come from, and how complex patterns arise from relatively simple building blocks.

IsoSiM Enriches Young Researchers

Led by TRIUMF and UBC, with funding from the NSERC CREATE Initiative, the Isotopes for Science and Medicine program will enrich training experiences for young Canadian researchers.

E-Linac Moves Into ARIEL

TRIUMF's new electron linear accelerator, the e-linac, is in position! This state-of-the-art equipment is at the heart of ARIEL and will increase TRIUMF's capabiites for isotope production. 

Canadian Cancer Society Innovation Grant

Pioneering research on Astatine-211, carrying great potential for the treatment of late-stage cancer, won Dr. Tom Ruth and UVic Ph.D. student Jason Crawford an Innovation Grant from the Canadian Cancer Society.


27 April 2015 -  TRIUMF's Board of Management recently appointed Dr. Digvir S. Jayas, Vice-President (Research and International) and Distinguished Professor from the University of Manitoba, to serve as Vice-Chair of the Board.

21 April 2015 -  The Government of Canada's Economic Action Plan 2015 commits to providing an additional $45 million in operating funds to TRIUMF over the next five years. TRIUMF applauds the Government’s continued investment in science, technology and innovation.

14 April 2015 -  A Visual Arts studio course taught by Ingrid Koenig at Emily Carr University was part of TRIUMF’s Artist in Residence program in Fall 2014. A gallery exhibit with response studies is now on show at Science World.

Research Highlights

23 April 2015 -  Rick Baartman has changed the shapes of magnets used to focus particle beams.

08 April 2015 -  Don Fleming and coworkers apply muon science to reveal new type of chemical bond.

26 March 2015 -  Research on alpha emitters is still in its infancy, primarily due to their limited availability. Jason Crawford, a Ph.D. student at the University of Victoria, wants to see that change using infrastructure at TRIUMF.
