From accelerators to energy to supercomputers,
Berkeley Lab has a science expert for you.


Featured Experts

Ting Xu

polymer chemist

Ting Xu is a fast-rising leader in the burgeoning field of self-assembling nanomaterials. For nanomaterials to have a signficant commercial impact, they must self-assemble in the same manner proteins self-assemble to make cells.

Priscilla Cooper


Priscilla Cooper is a leading expert in DNA repair. Her research addresses molecular mechanisms of the DNA damage response processes that are essential for maintaining genomic integrity and stability in human cells. A major focus of her work is on molecular and cellular studies of human genetic disorders involving defects in DNA repair, which also result in cancer predisposition, premature aging and/or severe developmental, neurological and immunological abnormalities.

Margaret S. Torn

ecologist and biogeochemist

Margaret Torn studies climate change impacts on ecosystems and the services they provide to society.  Her work focuses on the influence of the land surface on climate, including the potential for ecosystem-climate feedbacks to contribute to abrupt climate change.
