Case Center for Synchrotron Biosciences

Many of the advances in structural molecular biology and related biosciences are the result of the rapidly occurring developments at synchrotrons.

Synchrotrons play an indispensable role in advancing structural biology and related biosciences. The Case Center for Synchrotron Biosciences (CSB), facilitates access to synchrotron tools for an international community of biomedical researchers, with a focus on X-ray footprinting for understanding macromolecular structure and dynamics. The CSB is based at the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II), a US Department of Energy user facility located at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in New York.
