Building Beyond-Lithium Batteries: From Human Intuition to Artificial Intelligence
Explosive (sometimes literally!) growth of Li-ion batteries has enabled the electronics and electric vehicle revolutions over the past two decades, but has also raised geopolitical concerns about lithium reserve and supply. PNNL’s researchers are working toward building next-generation batteries based on new chemistries such as sodium, magnesium, zinc, and vanadium ions, along with small organic molecules which would ensure our energy security and resiliency. In particular, the organic chemistry route for new batteries is promising, but the number of possible molecules that could play this role (over a billion!) is daunting. This presentation will discuss our recent successes in finding viable molecules through intuition and also describe our ongoing efforts to use artificial intelligence toward designing optimal candidates. Learn more from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) Physicist, Vijay Murugesan. Please register in advance here: https://pnnl.zoomgov.com/webinar/register/WN_9n_r281bSI6uzz4NRM0wBg

Demystifying COVID-19: Behind the Mask: The Science on Stopping the Spread
What goes around comes around… unless there are successful preventative measures put in place. From air flow in buildings, to why this disease presents so differently in different individuals, to how long the virus survives without a host-- this talk will center on what we’ve learned about how to best keep our communities safe. It will also delve into some of the strange and sometimes serious health effects that can linger even after the COVID-19 virus has gone, including a loss of taste and smell or COVID toe.

Demystifying COVID-19: Model Me This: COVID-19 Scientific Predictions and Where We Go from Here
Numbers, numbers, everywhere. The stories they tell? Everyone cares. Using mathematical representations of disease patterns, scientists across the globe are beginning to arrive at a more complete picture of how and why COVID-19 spread over time across geographical locations and human populations. Join us to learn what types of models exist, how well they can predict future outcomes, and how current models are being used with other information to guide policy decisions and public health guidelines.

Demystifying COVID-19: Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3 (And What’s Up with The New Vaccine, Anyways?)
Thousands of genome and protein sequences. Over four hundred different diagnostic tests. More than two hundred vaccine candidates. One talk to sift through the herculean scientific effort behind them. If you’re confused about COVID-19 testing and vaccines, you’re not alone. What do all these tests actually measure? When are they most accurate and what are their weak spots? What are the four types of candidate vaccines available? How do they work? Are they safe? And how can herd immunity help stop the spread of pathogens? This talk will explore all these questions and more.
