Ten LBL-industry collaborations receive Energy Research funds

By Mike Wooldridge,

Ten multi-year research collaborations between LBL scientists and private industry have been awarded a total of $2.3 million by DOE's Energy Research Laboratory Technology Transfer (ER-LTT) Program for fiscal year 1995.

The projects could lead to, among other things, better flat panel displays for electronic devices, more efficient batteries for electric vehicles and new treatments for diabetes and obesity.

The ER-LTT awards are part of an ongoing effort by DOE to transfer scientific breakthroughs from the national labs to the marketplace. The awards are types of Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs), pacts between DOE and industry to jointly develop technologies with a high potential for commercial application.

Since the passing of legislation in 1989 that permitted DOE to enter into cooperative research with industry, the Department has arranged more than 1,000 CRADAs. LBL signed 17 CRADAs in fiscal year 1993 and 27 in 1994, according to Bruce Davies in the LBL Technology Transfer Department.

The following LBL projects were chosen by the LBL Technology Transfer Department, using a competitive merit review, for multi-year ER-LTT funding beginning in fiscal year 1995:

Several high-technology products now on the market began as Energy Research-funded collaborations between LBL and private industry. A joint effort with Conductus Inc. of Sunnyvale, Calif., led to Superconducting Interference Devices (SQUIDs), now used in medicine and geophysics to measure faint changes in magnetic fields. A collaboration with Colog of Golden, Colo., led to the Hydrophysical Logging Technology, a software system used by geologists to characterize the movement of water underground.

The Technology Transfer Department has been working to streamline the CRADA process at the Lab in order to shorten the period between the proposal calls and the final signing of the agreements. While the CRADA "award cycle" took an average of 304 days for fiscal year 1994, the cycle was completed in 131 days for the 1995 awards, according to Chris Kniel, LBL's new ER-LTT program manager.

Technology Transfer will hold "kick-off" meetings for the next call for proposals in the Bldg. 50 Auditorium on Monday, Oct. 31, and Monday, Nov. 7. Both meetings are from noon to 1:30 p.m. The meetings will include discussions of "quick response" projects, including small CRADAs and personnel exchanges. For more information, contact Kniel at X5566.

CRADAs can offer the following benefits to LBL researchers:

Lab rolls out red carpet for new employees

By Mike Wooldridge,

New recruits at LBL are getting a kinder and gentler first look at the Laboratory, thanks to a revamped orientation program launched over the summer.

The new program consists of a streamlined presentation--called the New Employee Orientation (NEO)--in the Bldg. 66 Auditorium, a guided bus tour, and complimentary lunch at the cafeteria.

"The program is designed to make new employees feel like they are a part of a community at the Lab," says Mary Anne Holman of the Human Resources Department. Holman is one of several staffers who present the orientation.

The impetus to revise the program came out of the Strategic Planning task force on "Making an LBL that Works," says HR's Marina Gonzalez (now at LLNL). Based on recommendations from the task force, she organized a committee that focused on humanizing the orientation process and giving new employees a different view of their workplace.

"People tend to get very attached to their divisions," Gonzalez says. "We hope the program will give them a more Lab-wide perspective."

The program replaces a 4-hour long marathon that many agreed was as much an exercise in tedium as it was a welcome to the Lab. In addition to two hours of orientation, the old program included two hours of DOE-mandated EH&S training on radiation safety, chemical safety, and other potential hazards at the Lab. "It was really information overload," says Community Relation's Shaun Fennessey, a committee member and NEO presenter.

The EH&S training portion is now presented separately in monthly sessions, and has been revamped with updated materials.

The NEO consists of an introduction by a guest Lab manager, a showing of the LBL video, which covers the history of the Lab, as well as past and present research, and an informative presentation on the Lab's organization, mission, and vision. The new employees receive a binder--containing reference materials on Lab policies, health and safety, benefits, and other essentials--that they can keep and add to throughout their employment.

Following the presentation, participants board a shuttle bus for a tour of the Lab grounds and off-site shuttle routes. The tour finishes at the cafeteria, where the employees meet representatives of LBL's employee organizations and have a chance to talk with Lab management over lunch.

The reorganization committee has also taken steps to help Lab divisions improve their own welcome process. Supervisors have new checklists to help them introduce their new employees to the workplace. A "buddy system" has also been proposed in which new employees are assigned peer partners to help them make an easy transition into their new jobs.

Other members of the reorganization committee include HR's Shirley Claire, Mary Bodvarsson of the Public Information Department, Mona Bernstein and Sara Rigler-Udo of EH&S, Meredith Montgomery of the Nuclear Science Division, and Joyce Freedman, formerly of the Administration Division.

Managers who have volunteered their time at the lunch so far include Ed Burgess, Bob Cahn, Bob Camper, Mike Chartock, Aloke Chatterjee, Cheryl Fragiadakis, and Stu Loken. Brennan Kreller of Community Relations coordinates the tour and lunch.

Managers interested in lunching with new employees following the NEO, which is usually held the first Tuesday of the month, may contact Shirley Claire at X4521.

Lab to host bone-marrow typing drive for minority groups

The Lab is sponsoring a bone-marrow typing drive from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 10, in the Bldg. 70A main conference room. All employees from under-represented ethnic groups are encouraged to participate.

Marrow transplantation is the most effective treatment for patients with aplastic anemia, some leukemias, lymphomas, and diseases of the immune system. Unfortunately, the marrow type of the patient and the donor must be closely matched; even among siblings, the odds of a match are only 30 percent. Apart from family members, the best possible odds of a match would be a member of the same racial group.

The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) is a Congressionally authorized nationwide computerized data bank of potential marrow donors to match patients. The Asian-American Donor Program (AADP) is a NMDP recruitment agency that has federal funding to type minorities, which have historically been under-represented in the data base. The AADP will be on hand to type Asian Pacific Islanders, African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans during the Nov. 10 drive.

Potential donors must be between the ages of 18 and 55. The test itself consists of the drawing of a 20cc test tube of blood, very similar to the blood test done as part of the LBL physical. The process, including paperwork, should take about 15-20 minutes. Participants will be on the registry until the age of 56; typing only needs to be done once.

Although the typing is usually not free (it can cost $50-$70), the AADP has federal funding to cover all costs of minority typing. For more information, contact the AADP at 523-3366.

They will perform "Dances of the Russian Soul," their 1994 fall concert, on November 5 and 6 at the Russian Center in San Francisco, 2450 Sutter St. Shows begin at 2 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, with a traditional Russian buffet preceding each performance. The concert will also feature guest artists from Russia, Turkey, and the Republic of Georgia.For tickets or more information, call Kreller at X6566 or the box office at 415/563-7362.

Galvin concerned about DOE role:

The Galvin Task Force made news in Nature last week when it was reported that Task Force chairman Robert Galvin has expressed "grave concern" that DOE is encouraging tighter supervision of the national laboratories by the federal government rather than giving contractors a free hand to manage them. The former Motorola company head was reported to have told members of his task force that he is unsure whether new contracts that provide intense DOE oversight give contractors the freedom to manage laboratories effectively. Galvin said that of the words and actions of new contracts suggest that in the future Go-Cos--Government Owned-Contractor Operated--will become Go-Gos--Government Owned-Government Operated facilities.

New DOE task force on tech transfer:

Technology Transfer will be the focus of Secretary of Energy Hazel O'Leary's newest task force. The Secretary has charged this task force with assessing DOE's efforts to commercialize the technologies developed under its $1.8 billion civilian energy research and development programs. "My goal is to get an independent assessment of whether the department has a coherent and effective plan for getting energy technologies into the marketplace," said O'Leary. Chairing this 31-member task force will be Daniel Yergin, president of Cambridge Energy Research Associates and Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Prize, a history of the oil industry. An interim report from the task force has been requested for June 1 so that it can be used to prepare the next installment of the National Energy Policy Plan, as well as Clinton's FY97 budget request.

FY95Laboratory R&D program supports new initiatives

LBL Director Charles Shank has announced the 47 projects selected for support by the Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) Program in FY1995.

A total of 127 proposals requesting a total of $18.1 million were submitted in response to the Call for Proposals this year. The proposals were evaluated in a process that relied strongly on the scientific judgment and priorities of the division directors and the Director's Review Committee. For FY95, a total of about $5.7 million in both operating expenses and capital equipment has been allocated for LDRD.

Director Shank said of the selections: "A major emphasis in this year's LDRD selections is to support new R&D initiatives in keeping with the LBL Strategic Plan. Funding was given to projects supporting environmental characterization, assessment and remediation; future development of ALS capabilities in magnets, detectors, and experimental support; transgenic mice research, an initiative in molecular design of materials; and resource efficiencies in building lifecycles. These exciting projects address scientific problems of national significance and have a good potential for future growth in laboratory programs.

"In addition, we were able to support a number of outstanding single-investigator research projects, though at a reduced proportion than previous years. I appreciate the effort and response of all investigators, especially in the originality and creativity demonstrated in all the proposals."

Energy Awareness Month

LBL recognized for excellence in energy-efficiency improvements

Contributed byAntonia Reaves,

In his proclamation naming October 1994 as Energy Awareness Month, President Clinton stated:

"I encourage all Americans to join in this crucial mission to conserve Earth's resources for our children and grandchildren by participating in activities that further our understanding and appreciation of the energy issues we face. Our work today will help to safeguard the strength of our economy, the well-being of our citizens, and the unique beauty of our world."

LBL has long been active in the effort to conserve the Earth's resources. Part of this effort has been visible through energy-efficiency retrofit projects at the Lab.

The In-House Energy Management (IHEM) program was recently awarded a Federal Energy and Water Management Award for Sustained Exemplary Service for outstanding work in energy efficiency during its 10 years at LBL. At the same awards ceremony, held on October 6 in Washington, D.C., LBL Deputy Director Klaus Berkner accepted a Federal Energy and Water Management Organization Award for the Lab. In addition, Donald Weber, LBL's Maintenance Manager, received an Individual Award for his management of the Bldgs. 47 and 71 boiler replacements and for his management of the annual Christmas Shutdown.

Technical Unit Election

A message from the LBL Labor Relations Steering Committee

LBL employees CAN make a difference. The election period for the Technical Unit employees (Unit 9) to decide whether or not they want to be represented exclusively by the University Professional and Technical Employees (UPTE) union has begun. As a simple majority of those who vote will win the election, LBL's most compelling message to technical employees is to VOTE. UC elections have been close and LBL represents about 8 percent of the Technical Unit, enough to decide the outcome. If UPTE wins the election, all technical employees will be bound by the terms of the labor contract, even if they do not vote. Your vote may decide the election!

The following graph shows the results fo the election in the University of California Systemwide Technical Unit in June 1983. The election was decided by a mere one-percent vote.

Remember to mark your ballot and return it as soon as possible. It must be received by PERB no later than Nov.14, 1994.

Green Team to tackle projects at LBL

LBL's new Green Team met for the first time on Thursday, Oct. 7, in the Bldg. 50A Auditorium to discuss several potential projects. LBL gardener and landscapist Dayna Powell talked about plans for an LBL community garden. EH&S's Li Yang Chang gave a presentation about the types of waste generated at LBL and our recycling and minimization efforts. Jack Liebster of the California Coastal Commission's Adopt-a-Beach program showed a video of the impacts of waste on marine animals and talked about the cleanup efforts underway.

Enthusiastic participants signed up for a variety of projects, including the gardening and Adopt-a-Beach programs. A committee to address litter removal is also being formed.

To join the Green Team, or to receive the group's newsletter, please contact Catherine Pinkas at X7249.

Clean Air Commuting

In the San Francisco Bay Area, cars generate over 80 percent of carbon monoxide emissions and about half of the smog-forming pollutants. All Bay Area residents--especially children, athletes, and senior citizens--are susceptible to heart and respiratory problems caused by polluted air. We can all be part of the solution by individually choosing a clean air commute alternative.

To address these concerns, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District adopted Regulation 13, Rule 1, requiring employers to participate in the solution by implementing programs to reduce commute trips. Because of this, the Lab will be developing an Employer Trip Reduction Program that provides information, assistance, and incentives to use clean air commute alternatives.

The Lab will be conducting an employee transportation survey to help develop the trip reduction program in the near future. Everyone's participation in the survey is critical to the program's success.

For more information, call Carma Hamer at X6197 or Fred Lothrop at X7726.

Credit Union reps to visit

Cal State 9 Credit Union representatives will be on-site to answer questions about credit union membership and services on Tuesday, Oct. 25, from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the LBL cafeteria.

All Lab employees are eligible for credit union membership. This includes full-time, part-time, temporary, and other employees receiving payment from the Lab.

Employees may have all or part of their paychecks sent electronically to their account at the Cal State 9 Credit Union. The credit union also offers a free, value-added checking account. To access their accounts, credit union members have unlimited use of the Wells Fargo ATM near the cafeteria with no service charge.

Cal State 9 representatives will offer a free gift to those employees signing up for membership on the day of the on-site enrollment. For more information, call 849-2270, X119.

Fishing trip

The Outdoor Club is sponsoring a coastal light-tackle rock cod and crab fishing trip aboard the New Florie S, leaving from Bodega Bay on Sunday, Nov. 6. The cost is $50; 18 spaces are available. For more information or to make reservations, contact Al Harcourt, X7660, or Michael Dickinson, X7792.

Lab life

Donna Brown of the Facilities A&E Department and her husband, Gary, are pleased to announce the birth of their second son, Daniel Edvin Brown, who made his appearance on Thursday, Sept. 29, at Eden Hospital in Castro Valley. The baby weighed in at 7 lbs, 13 oz.
