Roger Fourme becomes Life Science Director for SOLEIL

Professor Roger Fourme, a synchrotron radiation pioneer and a founding member of the Journal of Synchrotron Radiation editorial board, became the Director of Life Science for SOLEIL, the new French third-generation source. Roger Fourme had been very forthright in his criticism of the former French science Minister, Claude Allègre, who, in August 1999, had announced the abandonment of the French project SOLEIL (see Editorial, November 1999). Roger Fourme had established the first user facility for protein crystallography in Europe at the current french source, DCI, in 1976. He has been involved in several phasing methods for protein structure determination, especially MAD.
