Welcome to EMSL

Science Themes

Molecular-scale understanding of key chemical and physical properties of aerosols to accurately predict regional air quality and climate.
Optimizing and understanding the responses of organisms and biological communities to their environment.
Understanding the physical and chemical properties of interfaces to design new materials for energy applications.
Understanding molecular processes in terrestrial and subsurface environments.

Featured Stories

Chief Scientist Nancy Hess recently answered questions about EMSL’s Radiochemistry Annex and its importance to the understanding of the chemical fate and transport of radionuclides in terrestrial and subsurface ecosystems.
EMSL received first-year funding of almost $1M from the DOE Office of Science for a pilot program to develop imaging approaches to understand how microbes sense and respond to their environment on the molecular to cellular scale. EMSL Scientist James Evans will lead the multi-institutional project team.
The effects of biogeochemical and geochemical processes in the ground under us are on massive scales. Scientists working at EMSL are getting a handle on these gigantic macroscopic processes by focusing on the microscopic scale. By creating micromodels and incorporating supercomputer simulations, researchers are gaining a better understanding of the processes that affect our entire ecosystem.
A special issue of Proteomics highlighted EMSL’s top down proteomics expertise. The journal featured Ljiljana Paša-Tolic, EMSL’s lead scientist for mass spectroscopy, who co-edited the special issue, co-authored the publication’s editorial and contributed to three of the research articles. Other EMSL and PNNL researchers also contributed to the special issue.
