Its early guiding lights, charged with providing education (both "practical" and "classical") for the state's people, gradually established a distinguished faculty (with 22 Nobel laureates to date), a stellar research library, and more than 350 academic programs.This California institution became a catalyst of economic growth and social innovation the place where vitamin E was discovered, a lost Scarlatti opera found, the flu virus identified, and the nation's first no-fault divorce law drafted.
Research at Berkeley is undertaken within several types of organizations—academic departments, institutes and centers, museums, and field stations.
