America's New Nobelists
Take Messages to D.C.

The five most recent United States recipients of the Nobel Prize, including Berkeley Lab astrophysicist George Smoot, will spend the day Wednesday in Washington D.C. as part of the 12th annual Nobel Laureates Capitol Hill Day. After a morning Senate breakfast and roundtable discussion, hosted by Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Thad Cochran (R-MS), the five will meet with reporters and editors from the Washington Post. A House luncheon will follow with the Science and Technology Committee hosted by Bart Gordon (D-TN). Besides Smoot, participants will include John Mather of the University of Maryland, Craig Mello of the University of Massachusetts, and Andrew Fire and Roger Kornberg of Stanford.

Fleming Elected to NAS

Graham Fleming, Berkeley Lab Deputy Director and UC Berkeley’s Melvin Calvin Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, one of the nation’s highest honors for a scientist. He is one of 72 new members and 18 foreign associates to enter a private scientific organization that was established in 1863 under President Lincoln. His election to the academy brings the total number of Berkeley Lab NAS members to 60. Fleming came to Berkeley Lab in 1997 and started the Physical Biosciences Division. He was appointed Deputy Director in 2005. To read the NAS announcement go here.
