Livermore research team wins distinguished Department of Energy award for development of miniature glucose sensor for diabetes patients

ght Award is selected by a panel of DOE Citizen Judges, who choose innovations from among 23 discoveries or innovations hatched between 1999 and 2000. The innovations must demonstrate a benefit to the American public, be a contribution to U.S. competitiveness in the global marketplace and have the potential for significant future growth.

"We are extremely proud that DOE has selected one of the extraordinary achievements made by the Laboratory's Medical Technology Program team for the Bright Light Award," said Jeff Wadsworth, deputy director for Science and Technology. "This award proves the Laboratory continues to make significant contributions that benefit the quality of life."

The Bright Light Award is part of DOEs Energy 100 list, which honors 23 years of the best scientific and technological accomplishments the Department of Energy has to offer since the department was created in 1977. The achievements were nominated for review by DOE lab, program and field offices. A panel of citizen judges evaluated the achievements based on consumer orientation, whether it saves money and its ability to improve American quality of life.
