Scientists at Berkeley Lab are the first to use cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to image atomic changes in artificial proteins known as “peptoids.” Their findings have implications for the synthesis of soft, 2D materials for a wide variety of applications.
Berkeley Lab’s Chris Mungall and Nomi Harris explain how agreeing on precise definitions of each rare disease can lead to more accurate diagnoses and better treatments, and share new evidence showing this endeavor is more important than ever.
Berkeley Lab’s Rebecca Abergel, Roland Bürgmann, Cheryl A. Kerfeld, Michael Manga, Natalie Roe, and David V. Schaffer have been named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Election as a AAAS Fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers.
Berkeley Lab’s Erika Suzuki tied for first place in a September competition that featured technology pitches to an audience that included tech-transfer experts and investors. Her presentation focused on a Lab-developed mobile platform for finding and mapping radioactive and nuclear materials.
Berkeley Lab Names Robert Kostecki Director of the Energy Storage and Distributed Resources DivisionNovember 25th, 2019
Following an international search, Robert Kostecki has been appointed director of the Energy Storage and Distributed Resources Division in the Energy Technologies Area at Berkeley Lab.
Scientists at Berkeley Lab have revealed how atomic defects emerge in TMDs (transition metal dichalcogenides), and how those defects shape the 2D material’s electronic properties. Their findings could provide a versatile yet targeted platform for designing 2D materials for quantum information science.
Katherine Yelick, the Associate Laboratory Director for Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab and professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences at UC Berkeley, has been honored by HPCwire as their Editor’s Choice for Outstanding Leadership in high-performance computing.
