Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

After an extensive review of more than 20 applicants, LBNL announced in January of this year the selection of the Richmond Field Station as the preferred site for the development of LBNL's second campus, now referred to as the Richmond Bay Campus.   The concept that LBNL will consolidate its diverse biosciences programs both from off-site locations and hill site locations at a second campus to achieve much better intellectual and scientific integration, economies of scale, and remove space constraints for further expansion of its scientific research has substantial support from the leadership of the University of California and the Department of Energy.  We will discuss the vision for the Richmond Bay Campus including the consolidation of the Lab's biosciences research, an opportunity to partner anew with UC Berkeley (who will also be locating programs in another part of the Richmond Bay Campus), approaches to potential new programs with UCSF and UC Davis, and also the ideas of how to use the new campus as an exemplar of sustainable laboratory and office buildings.  This new location is also hoped to demonstrate ways to transfer LBNL inventions to start-ups as well as to directly show how the Lab contributes to the local, state, and national economy ecosystem.  I will give an update on the current status, and plans for the specifics of the first phase at the Richmond Bay Campus.
