RICHLAND, Wash. — Dr. Jean Futrell has been named to lead a new group of top scientists from the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. This group of ranking researchers, the Council of Fellows, will be comprised of the laboratory's Battelle Fellows, a select group who have distinguished themselves over many years as internationally recognized leaders in their particular field.

Within PNNL, Battelle Fellows serve as role models and mentors to other senior scientists and researchers while continuing to contribute to their field of science.
