Case Center for Synchrotron Biosciences
These include X-ray crystallography for protein structure determination, X-ray spectroscopy for examination of metalloprotein structure, and synchrotron footprinting technologies for examining macromolecular structure and dynamics. The Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine established the Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics for expanding the state-of-the art in proteomics research. This center provides administrative oversight for the Case Center for Synchrotron Biosciences (CSB) which is funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) as a Biotechnology Research Resource to serve an international community of biomedical scientists. The CSB is catalyzing further development and application of synchrotron radiation tools through a number of multidisciplinary collaborations and partnerships. The research facility is located at the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in New York. NSLS-II, as a Department of Energy funded facility, has as a mission to provide academic institutions access to synchrotron light through various general user, collaboration and consortium arrangements.
