The William R. Wiley Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) was featured at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) meeting in St. Louis February 16-20. EMSL Director Allison Campbell and BERs Mike Kuperberg organized a symposium February 17 entitled "Unique Tools for Unique Science: Profiling a DOE National Scientific User Facility." The symposium described EMSL's Scientific Grand Challenges and included presentations by Biogeochemistry Grand Challenge leader John Zachara, PNNL; and Membrane Biology Grand Challenge leader Himadri Pakrasi, Washington University. EMSL also had a booth at the meeting that gave Campbell and staff the opportunity to showcase EMSL's capabilities, science themes, and accessibility. Office of Science Director Raymond Orbach was one of the booth visitors.
