is a Science and Technology Center established by the National Science Foundation in 2013 of eight U.S. research universities
aimed at addressing the fundamental questions in biology at the molecular level
Using a recently-invented pulsed hard X-ray laser
, our researchers can capture biological molecules in atomic detail, view their functional motions by taking brief snapshots, and observe interactions in their native environment.
This opens up a new world to biology
, to science
, and to human health
