Erica champions science as a
McMaster Nuclear Reactor tour guide
Along with award-winning presentions of her breast cancer research at 3 Minute Thesis and GradFlix competitions. Erica serves as a tour guide at the McMaster Nuclear Reactor. During her tours with community members, Erica highlights the work being done at the reactor in the medical, commercial and research fields. The McMaster Nuclear Reactor was the first university-based research reactor in the British Commonwealth when it became operational in 1959. Today, the reactor is an essential provider of neutrons for research and medical isotope production.
Communication connects those doing research with the people we do our research for. If we want everyone to understand what we do, we all need to play a part in sharing reliable and truthful information. Being honest, approachable and engaging is the best way to garner support and maintain our relationships with the communities we belong to.
