  • 2009 March 5**The 5-Year Plan

  • 2009 March 5**5-Year PlanBuilding on OpportunitiesTRIUMF is poised for a transformationOpportunities, skills, and past investments are coming together

    Future plan seizes 3 new strategic opportunitiesPlatform technology: superconducting RF (SRF) Accelerators, medical-isotope production, flue-gas scrubbingPlatform technology: nuclear medicineLead emerging revolution Playing a major role in worlds largest scientific project: LHCCanadian Physics Analysis Centre & Tier-1 Data Centre

    Requested investments $328M for 2010-2015 operations$60M for capital infrastructure (buildings)

  • 2009 March 5**Success: EF5-18F (a first in Canada)Tests for Hypoxia radiation-resistant tumours

  • 2009 March 5**Excellence in Nuclear MedicineProgram started in neurology, expanding to oncologyWorld leading Pacific Parkinsons Research Centre (PPRC) (1500 patient visits a year)Entire program depends on TRIUMFMajor discoveries: Placebo effect; Trauma originsCore competenciesPET Imaging (synergy with $43M animal care facilityrabbit line)Radiochemistry and biomarkers (18F, 11C.)Target development techniques

    This entire field of application is predicated on radiotracer creation, radiopharmaceutical preparation, radiochemistry and interpretative radiobiologyall aspects established within the practical and intellectual domain of TRIUMF. Simon B. Sutcliffe, CEO BCCA

  • 2009 March 5**Nuclear Medicine RevolutionDrives Personalized MedicineThe level of knowledge and expertise within TRIUMF and MDS Nordion gives us a unique global competitive advantageSteve West, President, MDS Nordion

    Disease metabolism subject to detailed investigation with targeted labeled molecules --- amino acid transporters, peptides etc

    Establish cancer staging (metastasis) & efficacy of treatment with quick turn around (FDG PET)Dr. Dan Worsley stated that the introduction of PET/CT scans at the BCCA resulted in changes to more than 50% of the treatments for scanned patients

    Move towards imaging and therapy isotopes for cancer treatment (alpha emitters), e.g., 211At
