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.

A Warm Welcome to our 2022 Cyclotron Road Cohort

collage of 2022 fellowsWe are thrilled to welcome a new cohort of 11 scientists and engineers to the prestigious two-year fellowship program at Cyclotron Road, based at the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab).

Selected from a pool of more than 200 applicants, the 2022 Cohort fellows will work with Berkeley Lab scientists and facilities to translate innovative research into market-ready products that can improve the sustainability and scalability of modern energy systems.

Their projects include new energy storage technology, probabilistic computing, critical mineral refinement, environmental bioremediation and more.
