One of the major challenges of modern physics is to contribute to biology and life-sciences. Neutron and synchrotron facilities are premier research tools to tackle this important challenge. Neutron and x-ray beams allow us to study molecular structure and dynamics in membranes and interactions between membrane embedded proteins in-situ under physiological conditions. I will present exciting recent results and potential biomedical applications.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
