U of S researchers ready to mark Nuclear Science Week

SASKATOON - The Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation at the University of Saskatchewan will be hosting a nuclearFACTS Science Café to mark Nuclear Science Week.

Thursday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m.
Gallery B and C, TCU Place
35-22nd Street East

nuclearFACTS is a unique forum for people to find out more about nuclear research supported by the Fedoruk Centre from the researchers themselves. Representatives from 16 supported projects will be participating in the event, talking about work ranging from better ways to diagnose and treat cancer using medical isotopes, to advances in designing materials for future nuclear power plants, to determining the amounts of greenhouse gases produced by the uranium mining industry.

The evening will begin with a panel discussion and Q&A session, followed by a chance to meet researchers and examine displays of their work, over refreshments.

Admission is free, but advance registration is encouraged using Eventbrite at: https://nuclearfacts15.eventbrite.ca.
