PNNL researchers and professional staff led discussions ranging from biothreats and climate change to science careers at the 2020 annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, held this year in Seattle.
Advancements such as LEDs have changed consumers’ experience with lighting. Whereas there was once a simple choice of how much light a consumer desired, there’s now a variety of choices to be made about the appearance of light.
