This month marks the 15th anniversary of EMSL opening its doors to the global scientific community. I've been reflecting back on the many achievements and the thousands of individual scientists we've helped over those years. Today, I'm eager to look ahead to how we continue supporting our fellow scientists as we all attempt to make a difference in those issues that perplex us all.
Our role has been and will continue to be bringing the best people, instruments and facilities to bear on complex scientific challenges. This issue of The Molecular Bond speaks to how we will continue doing just that. You can hear our senior microscopist, Bernd Kabius, talk with me in a video about the next-generation ultrafast transmission electron microscope that we're pursuing. Or read about our new Chief Science Officer, Sherry Cady, and her expectations for EMSL's scientific impact.
Of course, our success relies upon the collaborations we enjoy with others around the world. One of our newest collaborations is with Hideaki Koike, recently named a Wiley Visiting Scientist who is from Japan. He's spending up to six months with us studying genomes in fungal organisms.
I thank all of you who have been a part of our first 15 years and hope you will continue to be a part of the EMSL family.
EMSL researcher's paper among most cited. EMSL scientist Igor Lyubinetsky's 2010 co-authored paper about thermally driven processes on rutile titanium dioxide in Progress in Surface Science was one of the most cited articles published in the journal since 2007. The paper's co-authors are PNNL scientists Zdenek Dohnalek and Roger Rousseau.
Wiley Visiting Scientist Program deadlines are quarterly. EMSL is accepting applications for the Wiley Visiting Scientist Program with the next deadline of Oct. 31.
