Engaging UC faculty and graduate student researchers with national laboratory scientists, facilities and resources.

Program Announcement (November 15, 2016): UCRI is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2017 UC-NLCollaborative Research and Training (CRT) awards and the In-Residence Graduate Fellowships. Four highly meritorious CRT projects proposing innovative research in three targeted strategic areas were selected from a pool of 33 applications. The portfolio includes collaborators from all 10 UC campuses and all three UC-managed national laboratories. In addition, four UC students were selected as the inaugural recipients of the UC-NL In-Residence Graduate Fellowships. Two will undertake dissertation research at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and two will do so at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Congratulations to all these outstanding researchers!

The UC Laboratory Fees Research Program enhances partnerships between UC researchers and laboratory scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Awards from this program promote the development of projects and collaborations that advance the missions of the national laboratories and UC.

The Program goals and funding priorities support:

  • Collaborative research between UC faculty and laboratory scientists
  • UC graduate students in programs that promote interaction between laboratory scientists and UC graduate programs
  • Research that takes advantage of unique laboratory facilities, especially involving students
  • Research in all fields and topics aligned with the mission of the laboratories
