From the New York Times, July 28, 2021: On Wednesday, a group of laboratories including Fermilab and major scientific publishers, announced an agreement that aims to simplify the process of applying new names to old papers for transgender scientists by shifting much of the administrative labor from the researcher to the laboratory.

From the DOE Office of Science, June 28, 2021: Particle physics research scientists supported by the U.S. Department of Energy tackle the fundamental mysteries at universities and national labs across the country. They build state-of-the-art experiments that yield incredible discoveries and achievements including Fermilab’s Muon g-2 result, the Higgs Boson discovery, the ProtoDune demonstration and the launch of the National Quantum Initiative.

From Lab Manager, June 29, 2021: The new Fermilab Integrated Engineering Research Center (IERC) is the first cross-divisional facility on Fermilab’s campus spanning over 79,208 gross sq. ft. The IERC will serve as an integrator for various research efforts and is expected to be complete June 2022.

From the Dallas Morning News, June 13, 2021: The results of the April 7 Muon g-2 result strongly disagreed with the standard model and it is incumbent upon us now to explain this observation, writes Stephen Sekula, chair of physics and an associate professor of experimental particle physics at Southern Methodist University.
