Kyle Lancaster is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University and has agreed to serve as Vice-Chair of the CHESS Users' Executive Committee. Professor Lancaster’s group employs synthesis, biochemistry, and a broad range of methods to explore small molecule reactivity as mediated by transition metals.

John Smedley is a Physicist with the Instrumentation Division at Brookhaven National Lab and is internationally recognized leader in the development of high efficiency photocathodes the miniature electron emitters at the heart of accelerator experiments that probe the fundamental laws of nature and the properties of materials for applications in energy technologies and other areas.

Meredith Silberstein, will be moving into the position of Chair of the CHESS Users' Committee as Katsu Murakami completes his term as Chair of the Committee and John Nagle will be completing his term on the Committee as well. This has been an exciting year for our Users' Committee their roles have grown and their input has been invaluable to our continued support of the CHESS community.
