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.
Co-led by McMaster and the University of Saskatchewan, the agency will establish a national neutron beam lab at the McMaster Nuclear Reactor, and will govern, manage and represent Canada’s infrastructure program for research and development with neutron beams.
McMaster is partnering with Halton Healthcare, Drone Delivery Canada, Air Canada Cargo and DSV Canada to develop a drone delivery system to transport nuclear medicine and other medical goods to hospitals and patients in Halton Region.
