Doug Ullrich is a mechanical engineer with specialization throughout the nuclear industry. He graduated from the University of Alberta in 1990 with a BSc. in Mechanical Engineering and is a professional engineer registered with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan. Doug holds permission to consult in the areas of nuclear material production, processing and handling and is also a member of the International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers.
Doug has extensive experience across the entire nuclear industry value chain including high grade uranium mining, CANDU reactor design and
multi-unit operations, and Manhattan Project legacy waste treatment on the Hanford nuclear reservation in Washington State.
Most recently, Doug managed the engineering department of the Canadian Light Source (CLS), Canada’s only 3rd generation synchrotron research facility. While at CLS, Doug was also involved in the Medical Isotope Project through the early design stages and developed the technology and processes currently used to safely produce and handle the radioactive isotopes.
In addition to Doug’s unique technical background, he is experienced in managing engineering projects from inception through commissioning and operations. He has led and managed engineering teams responsible for projects up to $75M. With his knowledge of world-class quality management systems, nuclear regulatory affairs and a global supply chain for the nuclear industry, Doug is eager to contribute to making Canadian Isotopes Innovations a reliable and innovative supplier of medical isotopes to the global nuclear medicine industry.
