TRIUMF is Canada's national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics. TRIUMF is considered Canada's leading nuclear science research institute, and is consistently regarded as one of the leading subatomic physics research centers on the international level. TRIUMF's headquarter is located on the south campus of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia. TRIUMF houses the world's largest cyclotron, a source of 500 MeV protons, which was named an IEEE Milestone in 2010. TRIUMF's activities involve particle physics, nuclear physics, nuclear medicine, and materials science.There are over 450 scientists, engineers, and staff on the TRIUMF site, as well as 150 students and postdoctoral fellows. The lab attracts over 1000 national and international researchers every year and has generated over $1B in economic impact activity over the last decade.TRIUMF scientists and university-based physicists develop and implement Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council’s (NSERC) long-range plan for subatomic physics. TRIUMF uses these plans to develop its own priorities. TRIUMF supports only those projects that have been independently peer reviewed and endorsed by the international scientific community. TRIUMF has over 50 international agreements for collaborative scientific research.Asteroid 14959 TRIUMF is named in honour of the laboratory.
