Research and Development

Scientific programs, research, and development in the SMB group at SSRL focus on novel approaches to problems in structural biology using synchrotron radiation. Core efforts include developing new methodological approaches to data collection from microscrystals; coupling scientific advances with software and hardware engineering to create intuitive and robust data collection environments; and establishment of a high-throughput pipeline to address needs in structural genomics and structure aided drug discovery. Challenging structural biology projects are being undertaken to develop, test, and improve methods.
