The Spring 2011 issue of Synergy spotlights Justin Rhodes and his new marine biology lab, the Beckman Institute Postdoctoral Fellows program, as well as a look back at the recent Beckman Institute Open House.
Beckman Institute Postdoctoral Fellows come from around the globe with Ph.D.s in hand from the top universities across America, Europe, and a few other distant corners of the world for a chance to do independent research unfetered by teaching or other duties.
A record number of exhibits delighted thousands of visitors to Beckman Institute Open House 2011, held March 11-12. The crowds were treated to the debut of Bert, the humanoid robot, the return of the virtual reality environments of Beckman's Illinois Simulator Laboratory, and many other scientific and fun displays during the two days.
Jose Jimenez is an industry researcher and former Beckman Postodcotral Fellow who knows the value of communicating science to a broad audience.
