Located on the University of Saskatchewan campus within the former Animal Resources Centre, the design of the Saskatchewan Centre for Innovations in Cyclotron Science aimed to establish a distinguished hub dedicated to cyclotron science. This facility serves as a vital means for generating valuable isotopes with applications in research, clinical practice, and potentially the commercial sector.

The project involved a comprehensive transformation of the former Animal Resources Building, along with the construction of a new addition designed to house the cyclotron and its essential support equipment. Notably, the renovation encompassed the creation of a state-of-the-art radiopharmaceutical production facility adhering to Health Canada’s rigorous Good Manufacturing Practice standards. Additionally, the facility features cutting-edge radiochemistry laboratories. Throughout the project, aodbt collaborated closely with project stakeholders and the University of Saskatchewan to ensure that the Saskatchewan Centre for Innovations in Cyclotron Science was designed to be a forward-looking, fully accessible, and interdisciplinary facility.

This innovative facility represents Saskatchewan’s first cyclotron and radioisotope production centre, positioned to make substantial contributions to diverse realms of science and medicine.
