New Chair for the Fedoruk Centre at USask

Saskatchewan nuclear engineering professor, Dr. Esam Hussein (PhD) is the new chair of the board for the Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation (Fedoruk Centre) at the University of Saskatchewan (USask).

USask explores small modular reactor fuel with federal funding

Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan (USask) received $900,000 to explore new and more efficient uranium-based fuels for small modular nuclear reactors (SMRs). Previously, Dr. Szpunar (PhD) led two projects funded by the Fedoruk Centre, for research on accident-tolerant fuels for SMRs and CANDU reactors, as well as the embrittlement of nickel-based alloys in reactor core components.

Fedoruk Centre Leading the Way in Saskatchewan’s Nuclear Future

Saskatchewan boasts a unique research landscape unlike any other province in Canada. World-class national and provincial research institutes are neighbours with research-focused universities and Innovation Saskatchewan’s research and technology parks, creating a thriving and collaborative ecosystem. Within this epicentre of innovation sits the Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation (Fedoruk Centre), one of six major research organizations funded by Innovation Saskatchewan.

USask researchers receive $7 million in CIHR funding

Research on new ovarian and pancreatic cancer diagnostics and therapeutics among the projects to receive funding. Dr. Fonge (PhD) has advised the Fedoruk Centre in developing capabilities of the Saskatchewan Cyclotron Facility to support pre-clinical and clinical research with targeted nuclear imaging methods.

University of Regina appoints first Fedoruk Chair in Neutron Imaging

University of Regina has established the Fedoruk Chair in Neutron Imaging in collaboration with the Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation at the University of Saskatchewan. Dr. Marcella Berg, the new Fedoruk Chair in Neutron Imaging, creates a research niche in Saskatchewan that contributes to the Canadian Neutron Initiative, leveraging the University of Regina’s extensive expertise in scattering experiments using particle beams and nuclear imaging. Neutron scattering is a method of measuring the atomic and magnetic motions of atoms.

Neutrons Canada established to lead Canadian program for research with neutron beams

Led by the University of Saskatchewan (USask) and McMaster University as co-chairs of the Canadian Neutron Initiative, 15 member universities have come together to incorporate a new not-for-profit research organization, Neutrons Canada. The Fedoruk Centre has provided management services to the CNI working group and will continue to help establish the new corporation.
