From Brookhaven Lab: "Doors Open at New Interdisciplinary Science Building for Energy Research at Brookhaven Lab"
April 11, 2013
“Doors opened today, April 11, 2013, at the , a new world-class research facility at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory where scientists will work to drive breakthrough solutions to the nation’s energy challenges. Representatives from DOE, Brookhaven Lab, and Brookhaven Science Associates (BSA) joined elected officials and members of the Brookhaven Lab community at the ISB for a dedication ceremony to celebrate the facility’s opening.
The new world-class Interdisciplinary Science Building at Brookhaven Lab is an 87,700-square-foot facility containing 60 standard laboratories, four specialty labs, and offices, where researchers will collaborate to tackle America’s most pressing energy challenges.
Scientists at the ISB will engineer and optimize materials with the goal of developing breakthrough technologies for batteries, biofuels, and solar panels.
‘Energy innovation plays a direct role in the continued prosperity and security of the United States, and the ISB is at the forefront of the Department of Energy’s investment in a vibrant future,’ said DOE Office of Science Director Bill Brinkman. ‘The research done here will have long-lasting and far-reaching impacts’”

One of ten national laboratories overseen and primarily funded by the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Brookhaven National Laboratory conducts research in the physical, biomedical, and environmental sciences, as well as in energy technologies and national security. Brookhaven Lab also builds and operates major scientific facilities available to university, industry and government researchers. The Laboratory’s almost 3,000 scientists, engineers, and support staff are joined each year by more than 5,000 visiting researchers from around the world.Brookhaven is operated and managed for DOE’s Office of Science by Brookhaven Science Associates, a limited-liability company founded by Stony Brook University, the largest academic user of Laboratory facilities, and Battelle, a nonprofit, applied science and technology organization.
