PHYS565
APPLICATIONS OF ISOTOPES IN SCIENCE AND MEDICINE


This UBC course covers applications of radioisotopes in nuclear medicine, materials science, environmental science, and nuclear physics in combination with the associated production, processing, and detection technologies. 

Lectures are complemented by eight homework assignments as well as a team research project that takes place at TRIUMF or within instructors' labs. The research project allow students directly apply what they have learned in lectures.

In the Fall 2016 semester, the class is taking place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00-3:20pm in Henn-302 (Physics). The schedule is as follows:
