Our program provides fellows with a living stipend, research funding, entrepreneurial training in collaboration with our non-profit partner Activate, and access to the multidisciplinary expertise and facilities at Berkeley Lab.

Since 2015, Cyclotron Road fellows have advanced 74 companies, raised over $1.85 billion in follow-on funding, hired over 1400 employees, and introduced new products across industries, including energy, agriculture, and manufacturing.

Our program connects participants with Berkeley Lab’s experts in a wide range of scientific disciplines and access to the Lab’s advanced research capabilities.  We manage dedicated, programmatic lab space with a variety of existing resources, which can complement collaborator and User Facility lab spaces.
