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.
