A new report from the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel has come out stressing the importance of international collaboration in particle physics research. The report is part of a series of “international benchmarking” studies commissioned by the Department of Energy’s Office of Science with the HEPAP subcommittee chaired by Fermilab scientists Patricia McBride and Bonnie Fleming.

The Trillion Parameter Consortium was recently launched bringing together science teams to address key challenges in advancing AI for science. Fermilab is part of this international group that includes researchers from federal laboratories, research institutes, academia, and industry.
Don Lincoln highlights how a recent development described in the journal Nature involving miniature particle accelerator technology could advance cancer treatment. Although the technology is a long way from being perfected, it could take the form of a pocket-sized accelerator that could irradiate tumors more precisely without damaging health tissue.
