Jeff Urban Joins Eight Researchers in Sharing "Big Ideas" at Science at the Theatre


Eight LBNL scientists including Jeff Urban, Director of the Inorganic Nanostructures Facility at the Molecular Foundry, presented eight game-changing concepts in eight minutes as part of the Science at the Theater on Monday, Oct. 28, at the Berkeley Repertory Theater (Roda Stage). In addition to Urban's talk on "synergist materials for energy applications," which can be viewed here, researchers include Peter Nugent (supercomputing and the search for supernovae), Seung-Wuk Lee (generating electricity from viruses), Peter Ercius (imaging atoms in 3-D), Ben Bowen (mass spectrometry imaging at hospitals), Kristin Persson (a Google for materials), Ian Hinchliffe (how the universe works), and Rebecca Abergel (a pill to treat people exposed to radioactive materials).
