Sorry for the long delay in posting but I was moving into my new digs. My office is now in Winston 102 on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh. I signed my condo lease through May 2009. I have been writing quite a bit (picture at right [Berube at 1]).

In addition, I finished four grant proposals (S&S and a DRU) and two that were CEIN full proposals. We wait now to learn if we are invited for reverse site visits on the CEINs. It's a competitive field so we will have to hope for the best. I am in DC right now. Will be attending the 3PM program in the Rayburn Building to see what our museum friend are up to and at 5:30 I will get to the Woodrow Wilson Center for the roll out of the "Nanotechnology: The Power of Small" documentary. I will fly back to Raleigh tomorrow morning and will teach my grad. seminar in RISK COMMUNICATION at 3PM and will head to the Durham Museum of Life and Science for a forum on Nanotechnology and Alternative Energy. We are getting the NIRT together now that it was transferred to NCSU with U. South Carolina as a subaward. We are planning the opening workshop on August 7-8 in Raleigh. It will be advertised next week. I am finalizing the invitations and schedule over the weekend. "No rest for the wicked." Finally, I am fielding a lot of requests for conferences after the article I wrote for the recent issue of the Journal of Nanoparticle Research on risk profile shifts in the debate over nanoparticles in sunscreens. DOI 10.1007/s11051-008-9362-7. To date all the reviews were positive.
