The U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory has awarded a contract to a general contractor for the construction of a new $66.8 million Interdisciplinary Science Building (ISB), a state-of-the-art facility that will bring together scientists focused on the nation’s most pressing challenge of the 21st century.
U.S. Department of Energy Deputy Secretary Daniel Poneman (left) and Congressman Tim Bishop visited BNL on June 1 to announce an additional $28 million in Recovery Act funding to accelerate cleanup projects at the Lab, including cleanup at the Brookhaven Graphite Research Reactor.
This news release is being issued today by the U.S. Department of Energy. Brookhaven Lab's Adrian Gozar has won a grant from DOE's new Early Career Research Program for his investigation of optical properties of materials at the level of nanometers, or billionths of a meter, to determine their functionality.

Thanks to American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding, the design and construction of the lab-office buildings for NSLS-II has been accelerated so that the buildings will be available for occupancy in FY12 – at least a year earlier than originally planned.
U.S Department of Energy Secretary Steven Chu has announced that more than $327 million in new funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will go toward scientific research, instrumentation, and laboratory infrastructure projects.
U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced today that up to $85 million in funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will be awarded in early 2010 to support at least 50 early career researchers for five years at U.S. academic institutions and DOE national laboratories.
U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand and U.S. Congressman Tim Bishop were among hundreds who celebrated the initiation of the NSLS-II project, which will bring direct economic benefits to Long Island and New York State.
Energy Secretary Steven Chu has announced $6 billion in new funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to accelerate environmental cleanup work and create thousands of jobs across 12 states - including a major investment in New York. Projects identified for funding will focus on accelerating cleanup of soil and groundwater, transportation and disposal of waste, and cleaning and demolishing former weapons complex facilities.
Brookhaven Lab will receive $184.3 million in new science funding from President Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, principally to accelerate construction of the National Synchrotron Light Source II, a new $912 million project approved to start construction earlier this year by the Department of Energy.
