TRIUMF, Canada's national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics research, and MDS Nordion, the world's leading supplier of medical isotopes, have recently won a 2004 synergy award for innovation from Science and Engineering Research Canada.

An outstanding example of Canadian university-indusry collaboration, the TRIUMF-MDS Nordion partnership is recognized for its commercial and scientific success in translating research into practical medical applications.

These include nuclear diagnostic and treatment tools for illnesses such as thyroid cancer, heart disease and neurological disorders.
