TRIUMF
Triumf, located at the University of British Columbia is one of the world’s leading subatomic physics laboratories; it is Canada’s national laboratory for nuclear and particle physics research and related sciences. Launched in 1968 by three Universities as a local facility for intermediate-energy nuclear physics, Triumf is now owned and operated by a consortium of 17 Canadian Universities. The Laboratory has expanded its fields of research from nuclear physics to include particle physics, molecular and materials science, and nuclear medicine. Triumf has a staff of 340 scientists, engineers, and technicians and a further 140 post-doctoral fellows, graduate students and co-op students, thereby training the next generation of leaders.
The tours will be given by researchers who will be able to answer your questions. The tour will begin in the lobby at the small scale model of Triumf where you will hear a general description and history of the site.  Subsequently, the guides will walk you through part of the experimental buildings where you will see first-hand where Triumf experiments are done.
