LBL, area firm join forces to improve early detection of breast cancer

By David Gilbert,

In a development that may lead to earlier diagnosis of breast cancer, LBL has signed a one-year cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) with Wang NMR Inc., a small business located in Livermore.

Breast cancer, the most common cancer in women, is second only to lung cancer in terms of mortality. Early detection with x-ray mammography, the current screening technique of choice, is not always successful. In particular, x-ray methods often fail to pick up small tumors in the breast or identify tumors through dense tissue of larger breasts. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI; also known as nuclear magnetic resonance or NMR), has proven to be effective in overcoming these obstacles. However, the ability of MRI to distinguish benign from malignant tumors once they are detected, remains a problem.

The aim of this collaborative endeavor is to develop technology to better zero in on tumors. During an MRI session a patient typically reclines on a table encircled by a large device that delivers a strong magnetic field. The magnet excites the molecules in the tissue to release energy that, with the aid of a computer, is reconstructed into an image that varies in color as a function of the tissue density. The technology now being developed will enable physicians to perform needle biopsies of detected tumors while the patient is being imaged.

Thomas F. Budinger, M.D., head of LBL's Center for Functional Imaging, said of the collaboration, "The sensitivity for detecting tumors by MRI is so great that frequently small tissue abnormalities, which might not be tumors, often appear in the image. If you have a unique detection technique, you also have to have a method for confirming what it is you have really detected. A method that allows for the detection of small tumors and needle biopsy of the suspect tumor while the patient is still in the magnet would be the most significant advance in breast cancer medicine of this decade.

"The technology that combines effective patient care with state-of-the-art instrumentation is exactly where the national labs can make contributions to improving the quality of health care while lowering the financial burden," he said.

In the scope of the agreement, LBL will design the component systems for the MRI mammography and biopsy system while Wang will fabricate the prototypes, including the device for in-magnet biopsy of breast tumors. These prototypes will then be tested in breast tissue phantoms at LBL's Center for Functional Imaging. Mark Roos, faculty scientist in the Center, will lead the effort at LBL.

Wang NMR is a manufacturer of superconducting magnets with experience in the design of special purpose magnets for magnetic resonance, fusion research and other applications.

UC/DOE lab senior managers hold second "summit"

By Ron Kolb

Senior managers from the University of California and the three UC-operated national laboratories engaged in their second "summit meeting" in mid-August to plan how to better address the country's research needs, the Department of Energy's mandates, and the University's contractual responsibilities.

LBL Director Charles V. Shank and Deputy Director Pier Oddone attended on behalf of the Laboratory. Attendees spent two days discussing issues of common concern, including interactions with the DOE's Task Force on Alternative Futures and the expansion of research relationships among UC campuses and the labs.

Representatives of the DOE also participated in the meeting, to explain their vision of future DOE programs and how the university can help the department achieve its goals. Former LBL Associate Director Martha A. Krebs, now director of the Office of Energy Research, and Victor H. Reis, assistant secretary for defense programs, offered their perspectives and heard about the joint planning activities of UC and the laboratories.

Walter E. Massey, UC provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, convened the group. Other attendees included C. Bruce Tarter, acting director of Lawrence Livermore National Lab, and William A. Lokke, LLNL's acting deputy director; Sigfried S. Hecker, director at Los Alamos National Lab, and LANL deputy director James Jackson; V. Wayne Kennedy, UC senior vice president for business and finance; C. Judson King, UC vice provost for research (and LBL researcher); Robert W. Kuckuck, UC special assistant for laboratory administration; and Tommy Ambrose, UC interim assistant for laboratory affairs. Daniel L. Simmons, chair of the UC Academic Senate and a UC Davis law professor, also participated.

"It was valuable to get all the key players in one room, to communicate frankly and directly about our concerns and interests," Oddone said of the meeting. "The potential for enhancing our capabilities through strengthened partnerships is tremendous, so we have to ensure that we're all moving in the same direction. Working together, we can bring even more value to what we do."

The group agreed to continue holding "summits" to identify and resolve issues growing from a contractual process which emphasizes performance-based management and intensified UC oversight.

Work/Family Committee celebrates its first year

In August, the Lab's Work/Family Committee (W/FC) celebrated its first year with a party in the lower cafeteria to acknowledge the work its members--and others in the Laboratory--have done to address work and family issues.

The W/FC was formed by Lab employees who wanted to provide a forum in which to identify and discuss work-related problems resulting from dependent-care responsibilities, and to work together--and with management--to find and implement creative solutions to those problems.

In its first year, said co-founders Janet Jacobsen and Charlotte Brown, the group produced a bi-monthly newsletter for employees with dependent care responsibilities; compiled fact sheets--for the LBL Child Care Center Working Group--on the operation of child care centers at various corporations and national labs; co-sponsored, with the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), an informal workshop on summer child care; and prepared a draft proposal for a summer childcare pilot program.

In addition to acknowledging the work of many individuals for their efforts over the past year, the group thanked Deputy Director Pier Oddone, Associate Lab Director Rod Fleischman, Employee Assistance Program Coordinator Kathleen Handron, and Michael Goldstein of Human Resources for their support and encouragement.

In Memoriam: Harry Bingham

LBL physicst Harry Hobart Bingham died of cancer at his home in Berkeley on August 23. He was 63.

Bingham had just retired in July after 15 years as a scientist in the Physics Division, and 30 years in the Physics Department at UC Berkeley. His research included the study of the interaction of high energy neutrinos, photons and hadrons with matter.

While at LBL, Bingham worked on experiments at Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, and at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Illinois. He spent sabbatical years at CERN, at the Rutherford Laboratory in England, and at the Texas Accelerator Center. He had published more than 100 research papers.

Bingham received a Ph.D. in physics from The California Institute of Technology in 1960, then spent two years at the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris, where he worked on bubble chamber development. He spent two years at CERN as a Ford Foundation Scholar. He joined the UC Berkeley faculty in 1964 and came to LBL in 1979.

He was a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and during his career received a Ford Foundation Fellowship and a National Science Foundation Visiting Scientist and Travel Fellowship.

Bingham was a long-time member of the Berkeley Yacht Club and the UC Faculty Club. He enjoyed many sports, including sailing, skiing, running, and soccer, and was an avid poker player.

Colleagues remember Bingham not only for his enthusiasm and cheerful disposition, but for his rigorous analytical skills and humor. One of his graduate students acknowledged Bingham in his Ph.D. thesis, describing his contribution as "quiet leadership...equal parts good fellowship, excitement, and scholarship. You can't ask for more."

Bingham is survived by his wife of 34 years, Judith Wells Bingham; two sons, Harry Bradford of Boston and Sanford Ernest of New York; a daughter, Alison Mankin of San Francisco; two grandsons; a sister; a half-brother; and his mother, Ernestine, of Vermont.

A memorial service will be held in the Great Hall of the Berkeley Faculty Club from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 9. An undergraduate scholarship fund has been established on the Berkeley Campus in his memory. Contributions may be made by contacting the UC Berkeley Physics Department at 642-3316.



Richard H. Nolan has been appointed director of DOE's Berkeley Site Office. He succeeds Scott Samuelson, who is now in the National Ignition Facility Project Office at Lawrence Livermore Lab. Nolan is no stranger to LBL and its scientific programs, having spent five years, starting in 1982, as director of energy research for what was then called DOE-SAN. He next went to DOE headquarters in Washington, D.C., where for two years he served as deputy director of the site selection task force for the Superconducting Super Collider. In 1989, he returned to the Bay Area to head DOE's local public affairs program until 1992. Following an assignment in the site office at Livermore, he returned to Oakland to work first in energy research programs, and most recently, in the quality management office. Nolan, who says the assignment to LBL is one he has coveted, is located in Bldg. 50B-3238, and can be reached by phone at X4345.


Robert W. Kuckuck, head of UC's Laboratory Administration Office, which provides administrative oversight of the management contracts for LBL, LLNL, and LANL, is returning to the Livermore Lab. Kuckuck has been named deputy director for operations by acting LLNL director Bruce Tarter. This is a new top-level management position at Livermore and the appointment will be effective November 1, pending approvement by the UC Board of Regents and DOE. Kuckuck joined UC systemwide administration in June 1992 to implement the performance-based management concept proposed by the University during negotiations with DOE to renews its laboratory operating contracts. A physicist, Kuckuck worked at LLNL for almost 30 years before moving to the UC home office.


James M. Turner has been named the new deputy manager of the DOE Oakland Operations Office. He replaces Terry Vaeth, who was reassigned to DOE's operations office in Las Vegas. Turner has been serving as director of the Office of Weapons Surety in DOE's Washington, D.C., headquarters since 1988, where he had primary responsibility for the nuclear weapons safety program. For the Oakland office, he will handle day-to-day operations, and, among other duties, chair the Performance Review Board for the contracts of LBL, LLNL, and LANL.


Chuck Hurley, long-time staff member in LBL's Public Information Department, is recovering from open-heart surgery on August 29. Friends may reach him at Saint Mary's hospital in San Francisco, where he will be recuperating for the next week.
