Research and education in Radiation Sciences is very interdisciplinary by nature. We aim for our graduates to be employable in many sectors including the nuclear industry, industrial and university research laboratories, and hospitals and cancer clinics. The outcomes from our research can provide solutions and innovations in cancer diagnosis and treatment, improved radiation dosimetry and radiation protection, unique biomedical devices, and new ways to ensure the health of our environment.

Solutions and innovations require collaboration and an understanding of the real world problems that our graduates may encounter in their future careers. Partnerships with other universities, with industry, and government organizations critical.

Supervisors in the Radiation Sciences Graduate Program maintain a number of partnerships. In the past decade, we have collaborated or partnered with:

Information Box Group

Bruce Power

Ontario Power Generation

Health Canada

Brunswick Smelter

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission

McMaster Museum Of Art

Northern Ontario School Of Medicine

Toronto Metropolitan University

Mount Allison University

Dublin Institute Of Technology

Norwegian University Of Life Sciences

Further examples of current partnerships are included in the biographies on our Supervisor page. We are always interested in exploring further opportunities for research and collaboration. Please contact Dr Fiona McNeill, Director of the Radiation Sciences Graduate Program, at
