EETD Helps Design High
School Physics Class

High school science teacher Janice Lord-Walker and her colleagues are running a five-week class called "Physics for Building Science" this summer at Laney College for Oakland high school students. The class is an opportunity to learn about physics by way of the workings of environmental control technology - refrigerators, air conditioners, furnaces and other such devices. Scientists in Berkeley Lab's Environmental Energy Technologies Division helped design the curriculum. Read more about the program here.


Rubin to Visit Café
For 'Ask a Scientist'

Berkeley Lab Genomics Division Director Eddy Rubin has been scheduled to appear at San Francisco's Bazaar Cafe on Wednesday night, Aug. 3, as part of an ongoing "ask a scientist" series. Rubin, also Joint Genome Institute director, will discuss and invite questions about recent work in sequencing the DNA of an extinct cave bear species.The session begins at 7 p.m. at 5927 California St. (at 21st Ave).


Lab Researchers
Work Toward Cures


High on a hilltop above the city, researchers at Berkeley Lab are working every day to contribute to both the scientific and world communities.   For example, in the Donner Lab, under life scientist Kenneth Downing, graduate student Alison Killilea works on a microscopic level to understand the medications used to treat breast, lung and ovarian cancer. She works with a chemotherapeutic drug, commercially sold as Taxol and generically known as paclitaxel, which inhibits the replication, or mitosis, of cells. Full story.


Extended Closure
For Road 269

Road 269 will be closed starting Thursday through Sept. 5 while part of the Building 71 roof is being replaced. Road 269 provides access from Chamberlain Road near Building 81 to the Glen Seaborg parking lot and other areas behind buildings 71 and 71A. During the closure, access to these areas will be from McMillan Road. For more information, contact Richard Doty (812-0073) or David McPherson (708-6026).
