The September issue's cover story "Building New Vaccines for the 21st Century" reports on a "platform" developed by Livermore scientists that uses nanolipoprotein particles to hold and deliver vaccines against infectious diseases. A feature article describes the high-energy-density science campaigns that have demonstrated the National Ignition Facility's ability to perform precise experiments relevant to stockpile stewardship and basic science research. A highlight reports on a new supercomputer code called Cardioid that realistically mimics the electrophysiology of a beating human heart. A second highlight describes how improved computational codes are being applied to address key national security problems.
