ARTMS Inc., TRIUMF spin-off company and global leader in isotope production technology, has announced US$19 million in Series A financing from a consortium led by Deerfield Management Company and Quark Ventures.
Building on a 50-year legacy of accelerating science for research, medicine, and business, TRIUMF today received an historic $292.7M investment in support of the lab’s future and its vision for Canada.
Scientists at TRIUMF, the Institut de Physique Nucléaire, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have for the first time accurately predicted the properties of polarized deuterium-tritium thermonuclear fusion. Their findings, described in a Nature Communications publication released today, add to our current understanding of the dynamics of nuclear fusion and may enable more accurate predictions of other thermonuclear reactions critical to nuclear science applications.
This afternoon, TRIUMF welcomed on-site The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, for a special visit and announcement about public investments into medical isotope research and innovation infrastructure.
TRIUMF, Canada’s particle accelerator centre, is pleased to launch its new Five-Year Plan 2020-2025, developed with extensive internal and external community consultation. It leverages past investments by government and builds on the laboratory’s strong brand and global network to deliver a new level of top-tier science, training, and innovation to Canada for decades to come.
TRIUMF, Canada’s particle accelerator centre, and Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL), Canada’s premier nuclear science and technology organization, are pleased to announce that they have agreed to pursue a strategic partnership around the commercial production of Actinium-225, a rare medical isotope that has the potential to serve as the basis of new ground-breaking cancer treatments.
Canadian and German research and private sector organizations sign MOU to establish corresponding networks to facilitate national and international collaboration in the use of quantum computing and machine learning tools
TRIUMF, Canada’s particle accelerator centre, has joined forces with R&B Brewing, one of Vancouver’s original East Van breweries, to create an anniversary beer to celebrate the lab’s five-decade history of cutting-edge science and discovery.
MEDIA ADVISORY: 8 a.m. PT, March 19, 2018, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – This coming Thursday morning, March 22, TRIUMF is thrilled to welcome on-site Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General Canada, as part of her first official visit to British Columbia.
Dr. Rob Kiefl, Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of British Columbia (UBC), member of the Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (SBQMI) at UBC and an affiliate Scientist at TRIUMF, has been awarded the 2017 Yamazaki Prize by the International Society for mSR Spectroscopy (ISMS).
ARTMSTM Products, Inc. (ARTMS), a Vancouver-based medical technology company, today announced they received “Most Promising pre-Commercial Technology” award at the 2017 BC Tech Association Technology Impact Awards (TIAs) on June 22, 2017. The award is given to a company in any stage of growth for a pre-commercial technology in development that has the potential to commercialize within five years.
Released today in the prestigious journal Nature, the collaboration reports on the first spectroscopic measurement of an atom of antimatter using lasers. ALPHA is an international team of researchers, including the ALPHA-Canada group, which studies antihydrogen, the antimatter partner to hydrogen. Their latest work represents a major step towards developing a very precise test of whether antimatter behaves differently than its normal matter anti-twin, thus opening up a promising new front to address the basic antimatter question: “if matter and antimatter were created equally during the Big Bang, where is all the antimatter?”
A consortium of institutions led by TRIUMF, Canada’s national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics and accelerator-based science, is granting sole rights for its proprietary technetium-99m (Tc-99m) production technology to ARTMS™ Products, Inc (ARTMS). Technetium-99m is used in over 80% of all nuclear medicine imaging procedures and is vital to patient care in areas such as cardiology, oncology, and neurology.
Magnetism permeates every scale of TRIUMF life, from the cyclotron’s 17m diameter main magnet down five orders of magnitude to the tiny internal magnetic fields inside millimetre-sized samples probed by μSR (muon spin rotation/resonance/relaxation) experiments, all the way down to probing materials at the tens of nanometre scale with the βNMR (beta-delayed nuclear magnetic resonance) facility.
On Sunday, May 15, The Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Canada’s Minister of Science, welcomed a new era of world-class scientific partnership between Canada and Japan as she unveiled the new TRIUMF branch office located at Japan’s KEK. Minister Duncan was joined by dignitaries from both laboratories to perform the ribbon cutting, celebrating the research collaboration between these two hubs for subatomic physics research.
The Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) and TRIUMF are pleased to announce that the 2016 CAP-TRIUMF Vogt Medal for Contributions to Subatomic Physics is awarded to Dr. Akira Konaka, TRIUMF Research Scientist, for his outstanding contributions to the T2K long-baseline neutrino experiment, including his leadership in establishing the collaboration.
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – TRIUMF is celebrating four decades of discovery enabled by the world’s largest cyclotron – a particle accelerator driving cutting-edge science with tangible impacts on our daily lives. Minister of Science Kirsty Duncan joined TRIUMF’s anniversary celebration and highlighted how the national laboratory continues to advance world-class science and engineering for the benefit of Canada.
TRIUMF will commemorate the 40th anniversary of commissioning of the world’s largest cyclotron on Tuesday, February 9. The Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science, and Terry Beech, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Science will join the celebration.
In September, eight research laboratories from around the globe hosted over 200 photographers at their world-class facilities for a unique opportunity to go behind-the-scenes and capture the beauty of physics through the Global Physics Photowalk 2015. An panel of international judges, along with a public online vote, now reveal the winners from the thousands of submissions.
