    The United States of America and our allies depend on Los Alamos National Laboratory’s (LANL’s) capabilities to support the security of our nation and world.

    We are charged with effectively leading and coordinating efforts within LANL and across partnering institutions and communities to fulfill the responsibilities entrusted to us. Our scientific and operational strengths are vital for managing the risks facing our nation and world. As the global environment changes, so the Laboratory must be ready to meet new challenges while delivering on the current programs and deliverables. LANL is committed to its partnership with the National Nuclear Security Agency (NNSA), Department of Defense (DOD), Congress, and other institutions central to our mission.

    The Leadership Team is fully committed to enabling the Laboratory’s mission while supporting its people, further enhancing the culture, and meeting the goals outlined in the Agenda.
