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.

TRIUMF Science Week 2015

TRIUMF hosted Science Week July 6-11. This included the 4th International ARIEL Science Workshop, the Users' Group AGM, the EEC meetings, and a public lecture at Science World.

LHC Ventures into the New Energy Frontier

After a 27-month shutdown, the LHC at CERN is now running stable beam collisions at 13 TeV and delivering physics data! TRIUMF has been integral to Canada's involvement in the ATLAS experiment. ATLAS Experiment © 2014 CERN

Col. Chris Hadfield at TRIUMF

Former Canadian astronaut and commander of the International Space Station Col. Chris Hadfield visited TRIUMF to meet with researchers, tour the lab, and learn about the latest science breakthroughs. Click through to listen to our interview with Hadfield.

Canadian Team Brings Solution to Tc-99m Crisis

With a decentralized production method, a safe supply chain of Tc-99m can be secured for Canadian patients and the threat of a medical isotope shortage is removed.

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 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.


17 June 2015 -  Science World and TRIUMF welcome SNOLAB's Dr. Chris Jillings to the Unveiling the Universe lecture series on Tuesday July 7. His talk, “The Search for Dark Matter or How to Know the Universe from a Hole in the Ground,” will shine a light on the worldwide search for dark matter.

04 June 2015 -  CERN’s Large Hadron Collider started delivering physics data for the first time after a 27-month shutdown for upgrades yesterday morning. TRIUMF has been integral to Canada's involvement in the ATLAS experiment.

01 June 2015 -  Congratulations to the successful CFI proposals led by the University of Victoria for ARIEL, Carleton University for ATLAS, the University of Calgary for ALPHA, and the University of Guelph for GRIFFIN.

Research Highlights

24 July 2015 -  T2K observes three candidate electron antineutrino events in the muon antineutrino beam at SK. TRIUMF's Mark Scott and University of Victoria's Jordan Myslik describe how the collaboration’s latest results are beginning to hint at an answer for understanding asymmetry in the Universe.

22 July 2015 -  Marie-Curie International Outgoing fellow Tobi Junginger knew he needed to see the bigger picture to grasp the small details. The German native will call Vancouver home for two years while he conducts research on accelerators with the RF/SRF group.

13 July 2015 -  How does a physician image a cancer that does not respond to common techniques? This is the question that Thompson Rivers University co-op student Carlee Poleschuk hopes to answer during her 8-month work term at TRIUMF.
