Who are the Fellows?

The Laboratory Fellows organization was established in 1981 and is made up of technical staff members who have been appointed by the Director to the rank of Fellow in recognition of sustained outstanding contributions and exceptional promise for continued professional achievement.

Fellows in the News:

The LANL Fellows congratulate their esteemed members Bette Korber and Fred Mortensen for being awarded the Los Alamos Medal, the highest honor given to a Laboratory employee.

Korber is one of two winners of the Los Alamos Medal for her work in computational biology. This includes her work in the development of the mosaic vaccine for HIV that is currently in human trials.

Mortensen was recognized for his profound impact on stockpile stewardship science.

Quoting Thom Mason: “Stockpile stewardship would not be where it is today without Fred's contributions, and Bette's work in vaccine design is unparalleled.”
