On July 16-17, 2018, Berkeley Lab hosted a workshop on opportunities to develop new materials made by biology that focused on inorganic and organic/inorganic composites. This event brought together researchers from across the lab to identify areas for collaborative research that bridge biology, chemistry, materials science, and computing. The workshop was held in anticipation of two recent workshops, one each hosted by the Department of Energy and Department of Defense, to develop a Berkeley Lab perspective for these types of materials. Caroline Ajo-Franklin, Peter Fischer, and Jay Keasling hosted the two-day meeting. The workshop report, which was compiled based on participant discussions and was reviewed by the participants, is now available for download.
Please take note of the processing and close deadlines as you plan for year-end activities related to proposals, subcontracts, bridge funding requests, travel expense reimbursements, and effort (LETS).
As shared by Mary Maxon with Biosciences staff on June 4, the 2018 Berkeley Lab Performance Review process has officially kicked off. Read her announcement here.
