If you follow our newsletters, you probably have noticed that BAL staff have had a busy winter and spring attending and presenting at many conferences around the country and even overseas. In case you missed any of the announcements or would like a copy of the presentations, here is a recap:
In February, Jamie Fox, presented at the Energy, Utility & Environment Conference in San Diego on Wastewater Selenium Chemistry in Bioreactor Treatment Systems (contact Jamie for a copy of the presentation). Also in February, two of our scientists, Dr. Hakan Gürleyük and Tamas Ugrai, presented at the European Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry in Austria. Hakan spoke about the Determination of radium in natural waters using IC-ICP-MS after on-line preconcentration (contact us for a copy of the presentation), while Tamas presented on Reducing the risk of inaccurate results when quantifying trace elements in seawater using ICP-QQQ-MS.
In March, Elizabeth Madonick, presented a poster at the AEHS Foundation’s International Conference on Soil, Water, Energy, and Air in San Diego on Reducing the Risk of Inaccurate Results When Quantifying Trace Elements in Seawater.
And then last month, Jamie presented at the Department of Defense Environmental Monitoring and Data Quality Workshop in Phoenix on Advances in Detection of Hexavalent Chromium, while Michelle Briscoe presented the same week at the ACIL Policies and Practices Meeting in Washington, D.C. on Reducing the Risk of Staff Turnover: Developing Great Managers and Culture.
Stay tuned for future conference announcements and presentations through our newsletter. Hope to see you out on the road!
Since team Pedal to the Metal’s inception in 2004, Brooks Applied Labs (along with many of our friends) have participated in the annual Bike MS Deception Pass Classic charity bike ride to fund research that will support the estimated 2.5 million people world wide that have been diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis (MS). This unpredictable and often disabling disease of the central nervous system disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Research breakthroughs are driving new therapies at an amazing rate, and a world free of MS is closer to being a reality thanks to the funding that is generated by Bike MS ride. There are courses designed for all riding skill levels, so if you like cycling, here is your chance do something that matters and have a great time doing it! Don’t ride? There are also opportunities to come and volunteer at Joseph Whidbey State Park on the waterfront. Contact team captain Elizabeth Madonick or view our team page for more information.
