On Quantum Diaries
Located in Vancouver, British Columbia, TRIUMF is Canada's national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics. The laboratory is owned and operated as a joint venture by a consortium of 16 Canadian universities and celebrated its fortieth anniversary in 2009. TRIUMF brings together dedicated physicists and interdisciplinary talent, sophisticated technical resources, and commercial partners in a way that has established the laboratory as a global success. Its large user community is composed of international teams of scientists, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate and undergraduate students. The advances ensuing from TRIUMF's research will enhance the health and quality of life of millions of Canadians, launch new high-tech companies, create new high-specificity drugs, help us to understand the environment, enable the development of new materials, and spur the imaginations of our children who want to know their place in the universe.
TRIUMF is...Accelerating Science for Canada.
