Congratulations to these members of the ALS community who will be honored with Berkeley Lab Director’s Awards. The Director’s Awards program recognizes the significant achievements of Lab employees. Each year, Berkeley Lab employees submit nominations of individuals and teams, which are then reviewed by a Lab-wide Director’s Awards committee.
