Abstract:
The following media advisory is being issued today by the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory. This event, for reporters only, will immediately follow a ceremony to mark the start of construction of a new research facility at the Lab -- the National Synchrotron Light Source II. If enough people sign up, the Lab will hire a bus to transport reporters from the Penn Station area in New York City to arrive in time for the groundbreaking (10:30 a.m.) and back to NYC afterward. Lunch and a tour are included! Space is limited, so sign up now.

Light Source Illuminates Nanomaterials, Catalysts, Alzheimer's and More

Upton, NY | Posted on June 3rd, 2009

Media briefing and facility tour following NSLS-II groundbreaking ceremony

EVENT: Scientists describe current findings with applications in nanoscience, biomedicine, and energy from the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS), and how their research will be advanced at NSLS-II, just starting construction at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory.

WHEN: Monday, June 15, 2009, noon - 2 p.m.

WHERE: NSLS, Brookhaven National Laboratory - on William Floyd Parkway, one-and-a-half miles north of Exit 68 of the Long Island Expressway, Upton, New York.

TRANSPORTATION: If at least 15 reporters sign up, the Lab will supply a charter bus to transport reporters from New York City to the Lab and back, free of charge. Details to follow.

DETAILS: Immediately following the NSLS-II groundbreaking ceremony, which starts at 10:30 a.m., scientists from Brookhaven Lab, academia, and industry will give brief talks on research at the National Synchrotron Light Source, a source of extremely bright x-rays, ultraviolet and infrared radiation used to probe the structures and properties of a variety of materials and biological samples. The scientists will describe how their work might be applied to meet ongoing challenges in medicine and energy, as well as how their work will be advanced at NSLS-II. When operational in 2015, NSLS-II will be 10,000 times brighter than NSLS - making it the world's brightest synchrotron light source.

Proposed speakers include:

Wayne Hendrickson, Columbia University - Deciphering protein structures to advance understanding of disease and drug design.

Qun Shen, Brookhaven Lab - Revealing structures and properties at the nanoscale, with applications for energy, superconductors, and more.

Lisa Miller, Brookhaven Lab - Investigating the role of metal ions in Alzheimer's disease neurodegeneration using synchrotron x-ray imaging (to be published in NeuroImage).

Simon Bare, UOP LLC, a Honeywell company - Improving our understanding of catalysts for renewable energy production and industrial applications.

Following the talks, reporters will be offered a tour of the existing NSLS and possibly also the Center for Functional Nanomaterials.

Please RSVP to Karen McNulty Walsh, , (631) 344-8350, or Mona S. Rowe, , (631) 344-5056.
