Scientists based at the York Structural Biology Laboratory use X-ray crystallography to provide invaluable information for developing genetic and chemical treatments for disorders such as neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.
Biological processes associated with life and disease involve complex molecular machines composed of proteins and nucleic acids. Find out how researchers at the Laboratory use X-ray crystallography to image the machines and watch them work.
Please meet at the Department of Biology reception.
