 Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley California

 

Lawrence Berkeley buildingsLawrence Berkeley

LBNL is a DOE facility for August 13, 1942 to the present so workers are eligible to file both Part B and Part E claims.

Lawrence Berkeley has a Special Exposure Cohort for all workers with specific cancers and at least 250 days employment from August 13, 1942-December 31, 1961.

The laboratory that eventually became the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, winner of the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron. Once the Manhattan Engineer District (MED) was founded in 1942, the Berkeley Laboratory became part of the MED. As part of the MED, scientists at Berkeley developed the electromagnetic enrichment process that was installed and operated at the Y-12 plant in Oak Ridge from 1943-1947. Scientists at Berkeley also discovered the transuranium elements, which include plutonium, neptunium and americium.

Work performed on behalf of LBL which took place in Gilman Hall on the University of California campus is also considered part of LBL.

Throughout the course of its operations, the potential for beryllium exposure existed at this site, due to beryllium use, residual contamination, and decontamination activities.
