    BERA Asian Pacific American Association Event

    4 pm, Center for Functional Nanomaterials, Bldg. 735

    Thursday, October 2, 2014, 4:00 pm

    Hosted by: Susan Wong

    The BERA Asian Pacific American Association (APAA) invites all to attend the Award Ceremony for the 10th annual Dr. Mow Shiah Lin Scholarship. The award of $1,000 will be presented to Ms. Meng Yang, a graduate student at the Stony Brook University Department of Chemistry studying for a Ph.D. in Chemistry. Ms. Yang's focus is in the field of Structural Biochemistry and Protein Science applied to the identification of new protein structural motifs that are important for cholesterol metabolism in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The APAA established the Dr. Mow Shiah Lin Scholarship to commemorate the life and career of Dr. Lin, who was a distinguished scientist at the Energy Sciences and Technology Department. In honor of Dr. Lin's research, remarkable achievements, and inventions, this scholarship is granted annually to a student of Asian heritage with a U.S. student visa matriculating toward a doctorate in Environmental & Energy Technology, Biology, or Chemistry at an accredited institution of higher education on Long Island, including Brooklyn and Queens, in remembrance of the manner in which Dr. Lin began his career. Ms. Yang will be introduced by her advisor, Dr. Nicole Sampson, followed by a brief overview of her current research. The ceremony will be held on Thursday, October 2nd at 4:00 p.m., at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) 2nd floor Seminar Room, Bldg. 735. Refreshments will follow the presentation. For more information, contact Susan Eng Wong, Ext. 7988.

    Hosted by: Peter Wanderer

    Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), the world's first x-ray free electron laser, was successfully commissioned at SLAC in 2009. Scientists from around the world have been exploring the use of this extraordinary light source for the last five years. In this talk, I will provide an overview of the progress, from our understanding of the source to scientific discoveries made and the future plan of LCLS.

    Hosted by: Christina Swinson

    YRS 2014 will bring together early career researchers (postdocs and graduate students) from a wide range of disciplines across BNL to exchange information and practice presenting their research work in a supportive scientific environment. This event will showcase the high value that young researchers bring to BNL through their research accomplishments and provide them an opportunity to explore potential research collaborations across the laboratory. Furthermore, it offers an excellent platform to demonstrate cutting edge BNL research activities to external audiences. Participation in this event is open to all BNL postdocs and graduate students. The entire lab community and external guests from DOE and neighboring institutions are invited to attend. The program includes both oral and poster presentations by BNL postdocs and graduate students, a career panel, and a reception.
