UC Berkeley and Berkeley Lab
UC Berkeley & Berkeley Lab
UC Berkeley has a unique and historic relationship with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). When the laboratory became a part of the U.S. Department of Energy's national laboratory system in the 1950s, the partnership between the two institutions was broadened beyond its initial focus. Today, the relationship continues to thrive. More than 200 UC Berkeley faculty members also hold appointments at the Berkeley Lab. In addition, Berkeley Lab hosts nearly 600 UC Berkeley graduate and undergraduate students, along with 500 postdoctoral researchers.
