March 4, 2020

McMaster University’s Nuclear Operations and Facilities (NO&F) houses an international suite of research facilities that enable discoveries in medicine, clean energy, nuclear safety, materials and environmental science. The central facility within NO&F is the McMaster Nuclear Reactor (MNR) – a multi-purpose reactor that provides neutrons for medical isotope production and research. Medical isotopes from the MNR treat over 200 patients per day worldwide. The reactor is supported by a 28,000 sqft dedicated High Level Laboratory Facility which contains the necessary infrastructure and licenses to allow research with far-reaching impacts for Canadians. Other nuclear infrastructure includes the hotcell facility in the Centre for Advanced Nuclear Systems (CANS), the cyclotron facility and the Accelerator Laboratories.
