From LBL: Michigan builds up to rare isotope beams

"In a scientific keynote address on Friday, June 12 at Michigan State University (MSU) in East Lansing, James Symons, Director of Berkeley Lab’s Nuclear Science Division (NSD), discussed the exciting research prospects of the new Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) to be built at MSU’s National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory," wrote LBL science writer Paul Preuss in a June 11, 2009 feature for the lab's News Center. "The U.S. Department of Energy’s new Under Secretary of Science Steve Koonin, himself trained as a nuclear physicist, delivered the keynote address at a luncheon following the ceremony. Famed physics rapper Liz McAlpine was one of the participants at the kickoff, along with officials from MSU, DOE, and the National Science Foundation (NSF)."
