The groundbreaking work of our nuclear research team is richly varied. Our research ranges from testing aircraft components to dating ancient artifacts. We are also developing molecular imaging tools to treat disease, and providing enough radioisotopes to treat 1,000 cancer patients a week. Learn how our cutting-edge nuclear research is improving lives around the world.
The program is part of a partnership between McMaster, Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) and Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) to advance nuclear research, education and training.
The isotopes produced at the McMaster Nuclear Reactor are used to treat approximately 70,000 cancer patients every year.
The McMaster Nuclear Reactor will increase production capacity and expand logistics coverage for the devices.
