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.

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. 

Celebrating International Ties

Dr. Emanuele Fiore, Scientific Attaché of the Embassy of Italy, was presented with TRIUMF’s inaugural Patron of Science award. The award recognizes selfless and meritorious contributions of an individual outside the organization.

Federal Support for Medical Isotopes Development

The Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification Michelle Rempel announced funding of $5.5 million to support TRIUMF in procuring a new TR-24 cyclotron and developing the Institute for Accelerator-based Medical Isotopes.

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.

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.
