Issue No. 28
From the Associate Director

So much is going on now at CHESS with a full house of x-ray users and preparations for the June Users' Meeting and BioSAXS and summer science workshops! Formal invitations are now going out to speakers for the meeting and workshops, so you should stay tuned for notification and registration as the programs get cast.  Read on to share congratulations to users on new publications and an inaugural student publication award, as well as to learn about continued development of new capabilities that lead to better x-ray beam qualities or ease of use for users centering small protein crystals in the beam.  And please let our user office know about any publications, highlights and achievements happening in your research programs. We love to boast!
