TRIUMF is a world-class laboratory with a diverse community that includes on-site research, technical, engineering, and administrative staff; university researchers and students; international collaborators; and industry partners. TRIUMF’s organizational structure reflects these multiple stakeholders working together in concert.
TRIUMF’s main strength is that it has a range of resources, both human and technical, that can be applied coherently to a given problem – from the physics to life sciences to business. TRIUMF’s community is distinct from that of a university, and different than most laboratories. Our unique mix of skillsets and technical capabilities results in different synergies than are possible most individual organizations. In short, we tackle questions that are beyond the scope and scale of what would be possible in a traditional academic institution.
