The 2013 annual report of the Climate Change Science Institute at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is now available. It highlights ecosystem-process work that spans microbial to global scales and feeds data into world-class models and simulations run on supercomputers; diverse environmental and climate data sets and tools; and analysis of impacts of climate change on human and natural systems. "Co-location and integration of these capabilities within CCSI create great potential to advance the science and provide accessible information and tools to help people deal with the consequences of climate change," said CCSI Director Jack Fellows.

BIOMEDICAL -- Collaborative innovation . . .
Researchers from all disciplines are invited to attend Oak Ridge National Laboratory's annual Biomedical Science and Engineering Conference, which explores intersecting topics in brain science. The theme of the conference, set for May 6-8 at ORNL, is "The Multi-Scale Brain: Spanning Molecular, Cellular, Systems, Cognitive, Behavioral, and Clinical Neuroscience." "Bridging the gap between molecules and mind requires critical innovations in areas such as neuroimaging, nanosensors, multi-scale modeling, and large-scale data analytics," said Georgia Tourassi, director of ORNL's Biomedical Science and Engineering Center.
