Lab highlights distinguished innovations

The seekers and finders of technological advances at Los Alamos National Laboratory celebrated another year of ingenuity Tuesday evening at Fuller Lodge.

“What I’ve enjoyed most about interactions with scientists and engineers at the lab is how excited they get about their technologies,” said Bill Enloe, chairman and CEO of Los Alamos National Bank, who gave a keynote talk to more than a hundred people gathered for the occasion.

With the loss of its manufacturing sector, the country has been living off the Internet and the information age for quite awhile now, Enloe said.

“A lot of that is not real value,” he said. The people receiving awards, on the other hand, were creating something that would have value in the coming years, as the economy becomes necessarily more value-driven.

Tech Transfer Division Leader Steve Girrens hosted the event.

The 2008 Distinguished Patent Award went to a team of seven individuals who work in three different divisions at the lab.

Greg Kaduchak, Greg Goddard, Gary Salzman, Dipen Sinha, John Martin, Cristopher Kwiatkowski and Steve Graves were recognized for a keystone patent that has supported a portfolio of intellectual properties with enormous value to the medical profession.
