Access to World-Class Scientific Resources
Science innovation takes significant risk, capital, and time. Cyclotron Road enables entrepreneurial scientists and engineers to translate their innovations into impact, leveraging Berkeley Lab’s world-class research facilities and tools. These include:
The Molecular Foundry is a Department of Energy (DOE)-funded nanoscience research facility that provides users from around the world with access to cutting-edge expertise and instrumentation in a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment.
Advanced Light Source
The Advanced Light Source is a DOE Office of Science User Facility with a mission to advance science for the benefit of society by providing our world-class synchrotron light source capabilities and expertise to a broad scientific community.
Joint Bioenergy Institute
The Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) is a DOE Bioenergy Research Center dedicated to developing advanced biofuels—liquid fuels derived from the solar energy stored in plant biomass that can replace gasoline, diesel and jet fuels.
Advanced Biofuels Process Demonstration Unit
The Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts Process Development Unit was established by the DOE to help ramp up the bioeconomy. The goal is to enable early stage advanced biofuels, biomaterials, and biochemicals product and process technologies to successfully scale from the lab to commercial relevance.
Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis
The Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis was established in 2010 as a DOE Energy Innovation Hub that aims to find new and effective ways to produce fuels using only sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide. It is the nation's largest research program dedicated to the advancement of solar-fuels generation science and technology.
Joint Genome Institute
The Joint Genome Institute is a DOE Office of Science User Facility with a mission to advance genomics in support of the DOE missions related to clean energy generation and environmental characterization and cleanup.
