Protein Finding May
Aid Cancer Drug Design

In a discovery that may help scientists design new cancer drugs, Howard Hughes Medical Institute researchers have provided scientists with the first definitive look at how the catalytic center of the epidermal growth factor receptor — a protein often implicated in cancer development — turns itself on to promote cell growth. The researchers, led by Berkeley Lab physical bioscientist John Kuriyan, published their findings in the June 15 issue of Cell. Xuewu Zhang, a guest with the Advanced Light Source, was the first author of the article. Full story.

LIGO facility in Louisiana

Observatory Will
'Feel' Rather Than See

Across the tapestry of the night sky, hundreds or perhaps thousands of stars are doing frantic dances of death, spinning wildly around each other and shooting off waves of invisible gravitational energy like interstellar beacons. One of the most exotic observatories in the world, LIGO — the Laser Interferometer Gravitational- Wave Observatory — could reveal much more than what traditional telescopes can. LIGO's executive director is former Lab scientist Jay Marx. Full story.

UCTV's Google Archive Includes Lab Videotapes

The Google Video Internet site has added a "partner page" of videos that have aired on the University of California's television channel, UCTV. This address organizes all UCTV programs by subject matter and will be continually updated with new content each month. Over 1,200 programs have been made available since UCTV's launch on Google Video, including several from Berkeley Lab's Summer Lecture Series and a 2003 interview with Director Steve Chu.
