Research conducted at these facilities can be divided into four themes:
Listed below are affiliated groups at McMaster University that work alongside Nuclear Operations and Facilities.
The Health Physics Department is responsible for implementing McMaster University’s Radiation Safety Program. They ensure the safety of those who work with ionizing radiation in the McMaster community through administrative controls, task-specific training, and continuous monitoring of facilities and personnel.
The BIMR plans for and operates sophisticated infrastructure for the production and advanced characterization of materials. It also disseminates and celebrates research achievement covering a wide range of scientific and engineering interests related to materials.
The Canadian Centre for Electron Microscopy provides world-class electron microscopy capabilities and expertise to Canadian researchers and industry working in a broad range of fields.
Radiation Sciences is broadly interdisciplinary, bridging the fields of medicine, biology, engineering and physical science. It provides scientific method and knowledge to certain industrial sectors, especially the healthcare and nuclear industries.
