Mission: To build a culture of sustainability through science.
Programs: Academic programsmy green lab has focused on bringing green labs programs to academic institutions across california. At the end of 2017 we were either directly responsible, or provided significant support for green lab programs at ucsd, ucsc, ucb, uci, stanford, the university of alabama, birmingham, mit, and the university of chicago.
green lab outreachmy green lab strives to provide clear, comprehensive information about best practices for sustainability in the lab. In addition to giving seminars at various organizations across california, in 2017 my green lab attended five large conferences (chesc, sfn, acs, i2sl and aashe) and gave formal presentations at three of them (chesc, aashe, i2sl). My green lab's green lab certification is recognized as a standard by aashe, and many of our outreach activities support laboratory certification.
biotech/pharmaceutical programsmy green lab has focused on bringing green labs programs to biotech and pharmaceutical companies across california. We established a formal green labs program for j&j and worked closely with amgen, pfizer, and genetech to establish utility rebates for laboratory equipment.
