Communications and Media Relations Group

Berkeley Lab’s Communications and Media Relations Group is responsible for gathering, reporting, and disseminating news about the Lab to both internal and external audiences, including employees, the media, and the community.

The latest news can be found at the News Center, which includes press releases, feature stories, announcements, multimedia features, and employee news. The site is searchable and offers web feeds and social networking tools.

In addition to the News Center, the Communications and Media Relations Group, together with the Creatives Services Office, also maintains the Lab’s homepage.
