Kenneth N. Barish (second from left), professor and chair of the Department of Physics & Astronomy, visited Washington, D.C., on April 9 for Nuclear Physics DC Day, and met with lawmakers and their staff.  Nuclear Physics DC Day is an annual event that gives physicists like Barish an opportunity to advocate for the national importance of nuclear physics research. This year, nearly 100 nuclear physicists from universities and institutions from across the United States participated. Seen in the photo with Barish are, from left to right, Manuel Calderón de la Barca Sánchez, a professor of physics at UC Davis; Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.); and Volker Koch, a physicist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Barish also met with staff from the offices of Senators Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein during his visit, as well as with five program officers at the National Science Foundation. His trip was supported by the UCR Office of Research and Economic Development.
