Winners were chosen for successfully sharing resources between institutions and campuses
The Case Center for Synchrotron Biosciences (CSB), located at the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II)—a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility at DOE’s Brookhaven National Laboratory—has been awarded second prize in the 2017 Sharing Research Resources competition, held by the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC). Winners were chosen for successfully sharing resources between institutions and campuses, including medical schools, teaching hospitals, and other academic institutions.
For over 20 years, CSB—a partnership between Brookhaven Lab and Case Western Reserve University—has made highly complex and expensive research resources available to thousands of scientists around the world. First at the National Synchrotron Light Source and now at NSLS-II, CSB has supported the construction and operation of multiple experimental stations for studies on the structure and function of biological macromolecules.
