Congratulations to Anna Grassellino who is among the winners of the women’s Oscar, the Marisa Bellisario Award, dedicated to “Women who make the difference”. She will be awarded the international prize for her the role for leading the SQMS Center at Fermilab.

Jim Kerby

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory announced Jim Kerby as project director for Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (LBNF/DUNE U.S.) He will be responsible for managing all aspects of the project in the U.S. as Fermilab leads the execution of the largest international DOE project ever hosted on U.S. soil.

Fermilab welcomes 2024 baby bison

Naperville News 17 reports on the new baby bison that arrived this spring at Fermilab. Just outside of Naperville, Fermilab has a growing herd of over 40 bison and two bulls that roam the campus’ prairie land.

Over the course of three years, scientists working on MINERvA recorded more than a million interactions of antineutrinos with other particles. This data allowed scientists to finally calculate the proton’s size using neutrinos, making this a statistically significant measurement of this characteristic.

The Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center in Lead, SD has a new centerpiece. A towering three-dimensional model that includes the Open Cut and 370 miles of drifts, ramps, and shafts that make up the Sanford Underground Research Facility was made to convey the giant caverns at SURF for the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility / Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.

Tau neutrinos were observed for the first time in 2000 at Fermilab. Today, IceCube scientists have detected high-energy tau neutrinos from deep space, suggesting that neutrino transformations occur not only in lab experiments but also over cosmic distances.

Greg Stephens officially began his role as chief operating officer at Fermilab bringing more than 35 years of experience in commercial, academic, international and U.S. government operations to Fermilab.
