Featured Stories

Washington State Academy of Sciences’ membership has elected EMSL Chief Scientist Don Baer as a member of the academy for his outstanding scientific achievement and leadership. He will be inducted into the academy in September.
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.
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.
A JBEI/JGI/EMSL collaboration has identified microbial species whose enzymes actively deconstruct biomass from switchgrass, a leading potential fuel crop.
