Head For Structural
Biology Group

Physical Biosciences Division Director Jay Keasling has announced the appointment of Paul Adams as Head of the Berkeley Center for Structural Biology (BCSB) at the Advanced Light Source. Adams will lead a facility of five beamlines optimized for protein crystallography, serving 1,206 users from over 182 research groups in universities, industry and national laboratories. For the past six months, Adams has served as Acting Head of the BCSB, managing an organizational transition and introducing innovations such as Service Crystallography, wherein data collection experiments are performed for users at remote locations.


Managers Meeting
For Softball Season

There will be an organizational meeting of team managers for the 2005 Berkeley Lab softball season next Wednesday at noon in the lower cafeteria. Those who manage an existing team or wish to form a new one should plan to attend. Individuals looking for a team to join should contact Steve Blair and they will be put on the "free agent" list from which existing teams pick up players. The league is made up of approximately nine teams. Spouses and children of employees as well as retirees are welcome to join. Games take place on Wednesday evenings at Maxwell Field on campus. The season runs from early June to late August.


Conflict Resolution
Topic of Workshop

Learn how to turn potentially destructive situations into opportunities for growth and transformation by attending a workshop on conflict resolution next Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to noon, in Perseverance Hall. The class will be led by UC Berkeley's Staff Ombudsperson Margo Wesley. Go here to register (ASD 9048).
