Eleanor A. Blakely, is a Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) Senior Staff Biophysicist with 45 y of professional experience in molecular, cellular and animal radiobiological research directed at studying the basic mechanisms of radiation responses, with an emphasis on charged particle radiation effects. She is also a Clinical Professor of Radiation Medicine (nontenured) at Loma Linda University, School of Medicine, Loma Linda, California. Dr. Blakely earned a PhD in Physiology from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana as a U.S. Atomic Energy Commission Special Fellow in Radiation Science and Protection.
Her professional activities have included service on advisory panels for several hospitals, universities, and numerous federal agencies including the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA); on Editorial Boards for several journals: Space Power, Radiation Research, Journal of Radiation Research, and NPJ Microgravity; Appointed Member, Diagnostic Radiology Study Section-Division of Research Grants, NIH; Advisory Committee Member, International Atomic Energy Agency; Scientific Director, NASA Space Research Summer School; and Elected Officer of the Radiation Research Society: Biology Councilor and Secretary-Treasurer.
In 2000 she was elected to NCRP, and has served on Scientific Committee (SC) 75 that produced NCRP Report No. 132, Radiation Protection Guidance for Activities in Low-Earth Orbit; and SC 1-7 that produced NCRP Report No. 153, Information Needed to Make Radiation Protection Recommendations for Space Missions Beyond Low-Earth Orbit. She has received several awards including the Robert Emerson Graduate Teaching Award, School of Life Sciences, University of Illinois, the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory Outstanding Performance Award, the DOE Office of Science Outstanding Mentor Award, the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory Technology Transfer Award, and an RD100 award from Research and Development Magazine.
Dr. Turqueti is currently a Research Engineer at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology.
Author or co-author of over 100 publications, his research interests are in the areas of electronics and signal processing for harsh environments especially those operating at high levels of radiation, cryogenic temperatures, or high magnetic fields. He works on projects funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) office of science, and by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).
Previously he worked at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) whereas an engineer he developed and researched electronics and signal processing algorithms for the CDF and D0 experiments. Dr.Turqueti lead at Fermilab the integration efforts for the US-CMS forward pixel detector.
In the private sector, Dr.Turqueti served as vice-president of technology at Creative Electron Inc, where he was the principal investigator and technical manager for several radiation detection projects for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and DOE.
His professional activities included serving on a variety of advisory panels, conference committees, and as a reviewer for DOE Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), and several journals, including IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science and IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity.
