 LIVERMORE, Calif., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Following is a digest of feature and news stories from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory which includes a contact name and telephone number:
 TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER


Labs to Join Cray Research in $72-Million Collaboration
 The Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos National Laboratories plan to join with Cray Research to write supercomputer software that is expected to help industry reduce the time necessary to bring products to market, upgrade manufacturing techniques and reduce the number of prototypes needed for new products. The proposed $72-million cooperative research and development agreement is the largest by the Laboratory thus far. Software will be developed on new Cray massively parallel computers.

 RUSSIAN/UKRAINIAN SCIENCE


Lab to Buy Russian/Ukrainian Science
 In what is hoped will be an embryonic first step toward cooperative work between the Laboratory and scientific institutes of the former Soviet Union, the Lawrence Livermore signed 28 contract agreements with leading Russian and Ukrainian research institutes and companies to provide the U.S. Department of Energy with non-weapons, unclassified research reports and hardware. Potential applications for the research include laser-based monitoring for enhanced weather prediction and pollution control, and technologies for destruction of hazardous wastes.

 BIOMEDICINE $5.2-Million Grant from the NCI to Study Cancer and Diet
 Lab biomedical researchers expect a recent grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to help produce a much clearer understanding of how diet and food preparation are connected to the risk of cancer. The $5.2 million grant -- the largest ever awarded by the NCI to the Laboratory -- will be used to pull together a comprehensive study of cancer-causing agents in the diet that will look at the effect of cooking temperature and time, chromosome damage caused by chronic exposure to carcinogens, pathways of carcinogens within the body and the effects of chemicals at actual human exposure levels, rather than at doses thousands of times higher than occur in real life.
