Jennifer Salazar is a Coordinating Writer and Editor in Argonne’s Computing, Environment and Life Sciences directorate. "I've found that our researchers want to share what excites them and communicate it to others in the wider research community or to the public, and this offers a great environment for a writer," she said.
Gertrude B. Elion - Wikipedia, Gertrude Belle Elion 1918 - 1999 MEDICAL RESEARCHER Thousands of people have been given a second chance because of her: This Nobel Prize-winning research scientist codeveloped two drugs that fought leukemia and, in 1957, developed the first immunosuppressant agent, a development that made it possible to transplant organs.
J’Tia Taylor is a nonproliferation technical specialist in Argonne’s Nuclear Engineering division. "I work mainly in the area of export control, assessing technologies for their nonproliferation implications. I look at a lot of the emerging technologies presented to the U.S. government that are not necessarily on the market. My job is to analyze what the technology does and what it’s used for, assess how it can be used and determine its implications for weapons of mass destruction."
Chemist Lin Chen is recognized internationally for her ground-breaking contributions in the excited-state structural studies using X-ray transient absorption spectroscopy. She was honored in 2012 as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science for her "contributions to understanding structural dynamics of molecular excited states with special emphasis on problems related to renewable energy."
