Featured Stories

Alex Guenther, EMSL’s Atmospheric Aerosol Systems Science Theme lead and a PNNL Laboratory Fellow, is impacting the atmospheric science community and has the science and journal citations to prove it.
ASTM International has selected EMSL’s Don Baer to receive the 2014 Award of Merit, the organization's highest recognition. He earned the award the for his exceptional service to ASTM International Committee E42 on Surface Analysis, innovations in the development of standards for surface analysis and development of new information resources for surface analysis.
Scientist Nancy Washton describes the NMR and EPR Laboratory in EMSL's Radiochemistry Annex and the types of research that can be done using nuclear magnetic resonance and electron paramagnetic resonance instruments. Washton discusses why users would want to do research in NMR/EPR Laboratory and why is it important to have a facility like the Radiochemistry Annex.
The votes are in, and the Society for Industrial Microbiology and Biotechnology membership has elected EMSL Science Theme Lead Scott Baker as the president-elect starting in July. He will be the organizations’ president beginning July 2015. SIMB is a nonprofit, international association dedicated to the advancement of microbiological sciences.
