The development of submissions related to a new isotope production technology

Canada found itself in a bind some time ago with the shut down of a medical isotope producing facility. While that facility underwent a rebuild, it was clear that long term sustainment using that process was unlikely. A leading professor of the UW Physics Department offered to change the way in which isotopes are created and offered his solution to the stakeholders. This translated into two key submissions which were approved and are still working their way through the development cycle. Our work was in the presentation of these two submissions. We are still the only business consultancy supporting a University’s Physics Department in Canada. Shouldn’t this a common event? Physics is ground zero for many advances in science and technology!
