Empowering Tomorrow's Technology Leaders

Cyclotron Road, a division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, supports leading entrepreneurial scientists as they advance technology projects with the potential for global impact. The division’s keystone program is a fellowship that supports entrepreneurial scientists and engineers as they develop globally impactful and commercially viable technology products. Since 2015, in partnership with the non-profit Activate.org, fellows have collaborated with more than 70 Berkeley Lab scientists, and the organizations they’ve founded have raised more than $315 million in follow-on funding, hired more than 330 employees, and introduced new products across industries.

Cyclotron Road Application Period is Open!

Apply October 15 through November 30, 2021 at www.activate.org/apply 

Cyclotron Road at Berkeley Lab

With leadership provided by Division Director Rachel Slaybaugh, who is also associate professor of nuclear engineering at UC Berkeley, we are growing and excited to welcome our newest cohort and encourage applications from all.

We empower the world’s top science innovators to advance their ideas from concept to viable first product. Cyclotron Road works in close partnership with an independent non-profit, Activate, which provides specialized entrepreneurship training and a curriculum designed to help innovators bring their innovations to market. Our close ties with UC Berkeley, many other academic institutions, and industry partners in the rich San Francisco Bay Area science and technology ecosystem and beyond help us meet our mission.
