Brookhaven National Laboratory
Brookhaven National Laboratory delivers discovery science and transformative technology to power and secure the nation’s future. Primarily supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science, Brookhaven Lab is a multidisciplinary laboratory with seven Nobel Prize-winning discoveries, 37 R&D 100 Awards, and more than 70 years of pioneering research. The Laboratory is located on Long Island, approximately 60 miles east of midtown Manhattan.
Brookhaven Lab staff lead and support diverse research teams that address DOE's mission to ensure the nation's security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental, and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions. Among Brookhaven Lab’s current initiatives are energy science, nuclear science, data science, particle physics, accelerator science and technology, quantitative plant science, and quantum information science.
Brookhaven Lab staff are entrusted by DOE, on the nation's behalf, to safely build and operate facilities that house unique tools used by interdisciplinary teams comprising researchers from Brookhaven as well as those from other national labs, academia, and industry. The Lab also offers robust STEM education and workforce development programs that draw more than 30,000 participants annually.
