Annual Report

The Beckman Center’s Annual Report to the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation serves two very important functions. First, it provides information to the foundation on the use of foundation funds, a description of the most important achievements over the past year, in the words of the center director, and a detailed description of center-funded programs, which broadly encompass education, technology development, and the provision, through the four Beckman Service Centers, of advanced research technologies and training offered to researchers across the Stanford campus. Second, the report is an archive of the history of the center, providing year-by-year insights into all of the activities and achievements of the center since its inception in 1989.
