BioXFEL interns (Rice Univ. Summer 2017) Jesus Valencia and Jessica Weng, and BioXFEL Scholar Joey Olmos (Rice Univ.PhD candidate), were awarded presentation awards for their “Outstanding Research Presentation,” at the 2018 National Diversity in STEM Conference in San Antonio, Texas.
An international collaboration led by the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron or DESY, with participation from Arizona State University's Biodesign Center for Applied Structural Discovery, the Department of Physics and the School of Molecular Sciences, as well as the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee Physics Department has announced the results of th...
A research consortium led by the University at Buffalo has been awarded $22.5 million from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to continue its groundbreaking work developing advanced imaging techniques for critical biological processes that are difficult, if not impossible, to see with conventional methods.
Antibiotic resistance is an imminent threat to human health. Tuberculosis is the number one killer among infectious diseases. Bacteria that cause tuberculosis are difficult to treat because they are often antibiotic resistant.
The European X-ray Free-Electron Laser recently came on-line as the biggest and brightest source of X-rays on planet Earth. Those brilliant X-ray beams will allow chemists to do groundbreaking research on enzymes, solar-cell materials, and more.
The National Science Foundation BioXFEL Science and Technology Center is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its sixth annual international conference in San Diego, CA February 12th - 14th, 2019. Our annual External Advisors Meeting will be held Monday, Feb 11th.
BioXFEL was well represented at the LCLS/SSRL Users' Meeting with Henry Chapman giving a plenary talk on Serial Femtosecond Crystallography: Past, Present, and Future featuring snippets from data as recent as 24 hours before the talk. David Bushnell, moderated a session that included the LCLS young investigator award and Linda Horton, Director of ...
Scientists who make movies of molecules in motion have a new high-speed camera to shoot with. The €1.2-billion (US$1.4-billion) European X-ray Free Electron Laser (XFEL) will start running its first experiments in September near Hamburg, Germany. The European XFEL fires powerful X-rays in bursts of a few hundred femtoseconds: so short that, like st...
BioXFEL researcher, Alexandra Ros of Arizona State University, has received the Federation of Analytical Chemistry and Spectroscopy Societies Innovation Award for her paper and presentation, “Electrically Triggered Water-in-Oil Droplets for Serial Femtosecond Crystallography.”
2019 Panofsky Fellowship at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (SLAC)

Fellowship for early-career research (experiment or theory) in a diverse range of fields related to the SLAC scientific mission:
A team of researchers, led by scientists from DESY, has demonstrated the successful use of a new type of liquid jet at high pulse repetition rates at FLASH. The study shows that liquid jets recover in time for the next pulse even at very short inter-pulse times of only 220 nanoseconds. Furthermore, the researchers conducted the first crystal diffra...
In September of 2017, Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico with 175 mph winds, cutting the island in half and unleashing torrents of rain and devastation. Now, almost a year later, Buffalo is helping displaced students rebuild their education while Puerto Rico is still rebuilding from the storm.
