While the Fedoruk Centre encourages the people of Saskatchewan to be involved in any aspect of nuclear research, development and training that they might choose, we believe it is helpful to aim for impacts in one of three main themes:
1. Nuclear imaging tools and methods to advance life sciences, agri-biotechnologies and medicine
Our cyclotron, isotope products, workstations and staff at the Facility are key resources for scientists to learn about life processes in plants, animals and humans, or to test new imaging probes or therapies through pre-clinical trials, all the way to commercialization and applications in health care.
2. Material sciences, through neutron-beam and other nuclear methods, to improve energy, health and transportation
Neutron beams and other nuclear methods can often reveal new knowledge about materials that cannot be found easily otherwise. Academic and industrial researchers from Saskatchewan can be supported in accessing neutron-beam facilities in Canada and abroad to advance materials for applications in health, energy, environmental stewardship, safety, and manufacturing competitiveness.
