The BNL community is invited to attend the 2010 Gertrude Scharff-Goldhaber Prize ceremony on Wednesday, July 21, at 3 p.m. in the Physics Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510. Established to recognize substantial promise and accomplishment by a woman graduate student in physics, the annual $1,000 award is administered by Brookhaven Women in Science (BWIS). The prize honors the outstanding contributions of the late nuclear physicist Gertrude Scharff-Goldhaber, who in 1950 became the first woman Ph.D. physicist appointed to the BNL staff. Later she became a founding member of BWIS.
This year’s prize will be awarded to Johanna Nelson, a graduate student at Stony Brook University. Nelson will present a short seminar on her research, titled “Coherent X-ray Diffraction Microscopy on Whole Eukaryotic Cells.” Refreshments will follow the presentation.
