The Saskatchewan Centre for Cyclotron Sciences (SCCS) at the University of Saskatchewan (USask) is a state-of-the-art facility that supports innovation in nuclear imaging and therapy in living specimens: plants, animals and humans.
This unique-in-Canada user facility, located at the heart of a growing nuclear imaging hub, features a high-energy cyclotron, radiopharmaceutical production facility, and radiochemistry laboratories
Owned by USask and operated by the Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation (Fedoruk Centre), the SCCS is a class II nuclear facility certified by Health Canada for production of radiopharmaceuticals.
The SCCS enables researchers to test better ways of diagnosing cancer, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease; invent new detectors and targeted therapies; and apply nuclear imaging to advance agricultural sciences.
Key goals are to:
- Advance cutting-edge life sciences research in plants, animals and humans;
- Improve medical diagnoses and treatments through nuclear medicine; and
- Produce clinical-quality radiopharmaceuticals
