The Best and the Brightest Come to Livermore

A View to a Kill

Biological Research Evolves at Livermore





Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham has announced the seven winners of the E. O. Lawrence Award. The winners from Lawrence Livermore are Bruce T. Goodwin and Benjamin D. Santer.
Other winners are Jeffrey Brinker of Sandia National Laboratories and the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque; Claire M. Fraser, the Institute for Genomic Research, Rockville, Maryland; Keith O. Hodgson, Stanford University and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, Stanford, California; Saul Perlmutter, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, California; and Paul J. Turinsky, North Carolina State University at Raleigh.
Goodwin receives the award in the national security category for his research on the complex dynamics of the fission triggers of thermonuclear weapons. He is associate director for Defense and Nuclear Technologies at the Laboratory.

Santer is honored in the environmental science and technology category for his contributions to understanding the effects of human activities on Earth’s climate. He is a physicist in the Laboratory’s Energy and Environment Directorate.

The E. O. Lawrence Award was established in 1959 to honor the inventor of the cyclotron particle accelerator, winner of the 1939 Nobel Prize for Physics, and founder of both Lawrence Livermore and Lawrence Berkeley national laboratories.
The award is given for outstanding contributions in the general field of atomic energy in seven categories—chemistry, biology, national security, materials research, life sciences, physics, environmental science and technology, and nuclear technology.
Each winner received a gold medal, a citation, and $25,000 at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., on October 28, 2002.
