Brookhaven Lab has made some significant contributions to advance positron emission tomography (PET) techniques commonly used to diagnose cancer and study brain activity. Today at the Lab's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, scientists are using a different kind of positron tomography to probe for clues in ultra-hot seas of subatomic quarks and gluons.
Robert Tribble, a widely respected physicist who has played a key role in charting the future direction of nuclear science in the U.S., has been named Deputy Director for Science & Technology at Brookhaven National Laboratory, effective February 24, 2014.
