It is exciting to watch the Livermore Lab Foundation move ahead as it fulfills its promise to provide opportunities to support research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Created nearly two years ago, the Foundation has supported a wide range of educational programs at the Laboratory, from coding training for local high school girls to work experience for students at Las Positas College and Cal State East Bay. It has joined with several other organizations in supporting veterans.

Earlier this month, the Foundation announced its first major project aimed at research, a $100,000 grant to help LLNL advance progress against the devastating neurological disease ALS — amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. It is also working on a climate project, an initiative to support research on negative emissions technologies for the State of California.
