Learn about Lab research at this year’s LDRD Day on October 23
The public will have an opportunity to learn about some of the Lab’s cutting-edge research and chat with its experts at this year’s LDRD (short for Laboratory Directed Research and Development) Day. It’s scheduled for Tuesday, October 23, from 9:20 a.m. to 12:10 p.m. at the Buffalo Thunder Resort in Santa Fe.
Attendees will be able to view more than 30 posters that highlight current Laboratory research and vote for their favorite one.
As if conversing with some of the nation's brightest researchers wasn't enough, there will also be two presentations during the morning. One is titled “Research in the Interest of National Security” and will be given by Dr. Steven Beckwith, with the University of California’s Office of the President. The other will be given by Terry Wallace, the Lab’s Principal Associate Director for Global Security, on “Addressing the Nation’s Toughest Technical Challenges.”
The event is free, open to the public, and you can register at the event. Just show up and enjoy leaning about the break-through science taking place in your very own backyard.
