"One Lab"

As you read in yesterday's SLAC Today, I have been asked to serve as acting director of the laboratory until the next director is on board. This is both an honor and an exciting challenge for me! The length of my term will depend on progress in the director search over the next few months. I am very hopeful that a new director for SLAC will be announced by the end of the calendar year.

If I have one motto for my time as acting director; it is "One Lab." Our scientific vision for the long-term future of the lab has to be developed as "One Lab" and that process is underway. We are embarking on an improvement initiative for the mission support activities at the lab with the help of McCallum-Turner, and we will do this as "One Lab." "One Lab" is the strategic context in which my new senior management team and I will make the tactical decisions to move SLAC forward to deliver outstanding science safely, efficiently and effectively.

To this end, as of this morning there is a new high-level organizational structure.  Read more...

Thanking Jonathan Dorfan

After eight exceptional years, Jonathan's tenure as director has come to an end. Everyone in the SLAC community is warmly invited to a special event on the SLAC green at 1:25 p.m. on Wednesday, September 12th. This is an opportunity for us to express our thanks for all the effort Jonathan has put into making SLAC one of the world's great laboratories. Stanford President John Hennessy and SLAC Acting Director Persis Drell will speak at the event. Refreshments will follow, along with the opportunity for individuals to thank Jonathan personally and contribute to a book of best wishes.
