New LANL Bioscience Division leader José Olivares

National Alliance for Advanced Biofuels and Bioproducts (NAABB) Executive Director José Olivares has been selected to serve as Division Leader for the Bioscience Division, a central hub for biotechnology development at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in New Mexico. Olivares, who has considerable experience in algal biofuels research, will lead a team of 180 researchers and staff within disciplinary groups that include Genome Science, Biosecurity and Public Health, Bioenergy and Environmental Science and Advanced Measurement Science, executing a portfolio of more than $70 million per year.

“This is an inspiring time to be researching algal biofuels and I pledge to continue to lead NAABB as its Executive Director until the end of the currently funded consortium term, which is April 2013,” said Olivares.  “The LANL efforts within NAABB are executed primarily out of the Bioscience Division, therefore NAABB and its future will remain a major focus of mine for the time to come.”

NAABB’s next objectives will focus on the performance of the third year, including the production of a closeout report for the current NAABB efforts and development of the vision for NAABB beyond 2013. The consortium will continue to support algal biofuel research in the growing biofuel industry.

The NAABB, a public-private partnership recently funded by the US Department of Energy, Office of Biomass Programs, to focus on the development of the algal biofuels industry, is refining technologies for cost-effective production of algal biomass and lipids, economically viable fuels and co-products, and providing a framework for a sustainable biofuels industry.
