In just five years, Anffany Chen went from being a TRIUMF high school fellow to a UBC PhD candidate studying condensed matter theory. Her rapid journey from science enthusiast to emerging physics scholar is an inspiration to students everywhere.
Spring is in the air. Daffodils are blooming, birds are singing and the world’s largest cyclotron is once again preparing to accelerate beams of protons to incredible speeds, breaking new ground in the study of rare isotopes.
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.
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.
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.
On March 30, TRIUMF welcomed the Honourable Greg Rickford, Minister of Natural Resources to receive updates on our research, particularly ongoing work in the cyclotron-based production of medical isotopes.
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.
