Posted: April 04, 2005

The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Washington, has conducted a nationwide search over the past few months to select a new Director for the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL), a national scientific user facility for molecular-level research. On Friday, March 11, 2005, Dr. Allison Campbell was named the Director of the EMSL. Dr. Campbell has been serving as Interim EMSL Director for the past eight months. Prior to her assignment as Interim Director, Dr. Campbell served for four years as EMSLs Deputy Director, and then Associate Director for Scientific Resources. Dr. Campbells biomaterials research has earned her many honors; her most recent award is the 2005 American Chemical Societys (ACS) Regional Industrial Innovation Award for her work in bioceramic coatings. The ACS Regional Industrial Innovation Awards are given to individuals and teams whose creative innovations have contributed to the commercial success of their company and, consequently, to the good of the community and society. Dr. Campbell will be recognized for this award at the ACS Northwest Regional Meeting in Fairbanks, Alaska, in June 2005.
