Quotes

"Andy Sessler changed the face and character of our laboratory," current lab director, Paul Alivisatos, said in a news release. "He successfully made the case for science to aid our country during its first energy crisis and helped establish the lab's efforts that brought about important technologies and standards that have improved the way we conserve and consume energy."
...In upholding a higher education research exclusion from freedom of information access in this case, the Court cited the potential for "harm to university-wide research efforts, damage to faculty recruitment and retention, undermining of faculty expectations of privacy and confidentiality, and impairment of free thought and expression."  This is the result we have advocated in this case for the past three years
