The Isotopes for Science and Medicine (IsoSiM) NSERC CREATE program was established by TRIUMF and UBC in response to the growing importance of applications of nuclear isotopes in a broad range of fields, from environmental science, preclinical medical research, and characterization of new materials, to investigations of the foundations of the universe.

Joining IsoSiM gives you access to the world’s largest cyclotron at TRIUMF, mentorship from supervisors who have over 1000 peer-reviewed papers, and elite international exchanges with industry partners in Germany. Apart from stipends, IsoSiM provides students with enriched training experiences in the production, preparation, and application of nuclear isotopes for science and medicine that is enhanced by individualized professional skills development plans and internships.
