MicrobeWorld Interview with Jeff Gillow, BNL/CEMS (MP3)
A short interview with with Jeff Gillow, Chemistry Associate at Brookhaven National Laboratory and CEMS member about using STXM to see the molecular
workings of bacterial cells. His goal is to use bacteria to clean up pollution. Click here for more information on
NSLS Science Highlights-February issue of Elements Magazine
As a part of this special issue, geochemists Antonio Lanzirotti (University of Chicago) and
Richard J. Reeder (Stony Brook University) have authored an article in this issue titled
Accessing User Facilities and Making Your Research Experience Successful".
Another article by a CEMS PI, John Parise
and collaborator Gordon Brown from Stanford University titled "New Opportunities at Emerging Facilities" is also in the February issue.

Scientists Describe New Way to Peer Inside Bacteria
X-rays yield pictures and chemical clues that may help trace contaminants, thwart terrorists
Brookhaven National Laboratory Press Release
"UPTON, NY -- As part of the search for better ways to track and clean up soil contaminants, scientists at the
U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory and Stony Brook University have developed a
new way to "image" the internal chemistry of bacteria. The technique will allow scientists to "see" at the molecular
level how soil-dwelling microbes interact with various pollutants. The method might also help scientists better understand and
prevent bacterial diseases, or find ways to detect or disable bacteria used in a terror attack. ....
This work is a collaborative effort of the Center for Environmental Molecular Science -- which consists of scientists from Stony
Brook University and Brookhaven Lab -- and the University of Guelph in Canada.

Decomposition of RNA in the presence of synthetic Ni-pyrites
See link for the power point presentation.
Maria "Terry" Minjares, a CEMS 2004 Summer REU student presented her summer research at the American Chemical Society National Meeting in March 2005.
Terry is from Our Lady of the Lake University located in El Paso, TX. Terry worked in Prof. Martin Schoonen's geochemistry lab
with mentor graduate students Marc Michel and Corey Cohn. Terry was one of nine CEMS summer REU students during the summer of 2004. For more information

Dev Chidambaram-2005 Morris Cohen Award
June 17 Brookhaven Bulletin PowerPoint
Dev selected to attend the Nobel Laureates meeting in Germany
Dev Chidambaram, a former student of Prof. Gary Halada, was notified by the Corrosion Division of the Electrochemical Society
that he had been selected as the 2005 Morris Cohen Award winner! The
award was established in 1991 to "recognize outstanding graduate research
in the field of corrosion science and/or engineering." His work certainly
merits the recognition. Congratulations! Dev is now a post doc at Brookhaven National Laboratory under A.J. Francis in the
Environmental Sciences Department.

EnviroSuite: Environmental Science at the NSLS (Page 6)
by Paul Northrup, BNL-Environmental Sciences
"Created in response to rapidly growing interest in environmental synchrotron science, the EnviroSuite Strategic Initiative is designed
to support and develop a suite of state-of-the-art resources at the NSLS for molecular environmental science research. Its BNL core consists
of a number of environmental scientists, who work closely with the NSLS and with CEMS..."
