Dear DOE EPSCoR Colleagues,
I am writing to inform you that Dr. Kristin Bennett, program manager for DOE EPSCoR, will be leaving the Department of Energy effective Feb. 1, 2008 to pursue other career goals and interests.  Kristin has supported the mission of the Office and the Department for over five years in Basic Energy Sciences as a program manager in both the Division of Materials Sciences and Engineering and the Scientific User Facilities Division. She has led the EPSCoR program with energy and vision and has created a strong path forward for the program.
Dr. Tim Fitzsimmons of DMSE has agreed to serve as interim DOE EPSCoR program manager.  Dr. Fitzsimmons may be contacted at 301-903-9830 (
