Collaboration with Royal Saskatchewan Museum.

That was fast. Lab PI Eric Snively visited the T. rex Discovery Centre and RSM Field Station in Eastend, SK, to set up summer collaboration with Curator of Palaeontology Tim Tokaryk. The RSM and rex Lab will use computed tomographic (CT) scanning, and the Canadian Light Source synchrotron (University of Saskatchewan), to investigate bones of adult and juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex. Here are Tim and Eric with Scotty (RSM P2523.8) for scale.
