During the 510th Brookhaven Lecture, Yonggang Cui of the Nonproliferation & National Security Department will explain how he and a multidisciplinary team of collaborators created the Proxiscan™ imaging platform—a compact, high-resolution digital gamma camera to diagnose prostate cancer and possibly breast, ovarian, and other cancers as well.
The partnership between Stony Brook University and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory affords high-achieving undergraduates an opportunity to do hands-on Big Science, and physics major Casey Vieni ’15 has taken full advantage.
Kerstin Kleese van Dam, a leading researcher in data infrastructure services, data management, and analysis applications for experimental and observational facilities, has been named Director of the Computational Science Initiative at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, effective September 14, 2015.
Increasing the amount of crops grown for fuel reduces the amount space available for crops grown for food, so scientists at Brookhaven Lab are developing ways to "fatten up" plants to increase oil production. This research could lead to greater amounts of fuel produced from fewer acres of farmland.
