Using SLAC’s X-ray synchrotron SSRL, Wang improves fundamental knowledge about how cells communicate, which could enable the development of more effective drugs.
For mechanical engineer Sarah Edwards, SSRL is the ultimate classic car.
A better understanding of how these receptors work could enable scientists to design better therapeutics for sleep disorders, cancer and Type 2 diabetes.
In the decade since LCLS produced its first light, it has pushed boundaries in countless areas of discovery.
New research will help in the quest to design low-cost drugs that can tackle postpartum bleeding and other conditions without severe side effects.
In a major step forward, SLAC’s X-ray laser captures all four stable states of the process that produces the oxygen we breathe, as well as fleeting steps in between. The work opens doors to understanding the past and creating a greener future.
The annual conference for scientists who conduct research at SLAC’s light sources engaged about 400 researchers in talks, workshops and discussions.
This summer, five graduate students from the University of Puerto Rico had the opportunity to use SLAC’s world-class facilities to keep their studies on track.
A new imaging technique is allowing researchers to pinpoint ways of modifying drugs to avoid side effects.
As members of the lab’s Computer Science Division, they develop the tools needed to handle ginormous data volumes produced by the next generation of scientific discovery machines.
