Workshop on Neutron Crystallography May 3rd


Hydrogen makes up about half the atoms in proteins, but it's almost invisible in X-ray crystallography, the method by which most biological structures are solved. In Lund the world’s most powerful neutron source ESS is under construction. Neutron crystallography enables the direct observation of hydrogens and protons, from very large protein crystals. 

Uppsala has a distinguished history in protein purification, with Nobel Prize winners The Svedberg and Arne Tiselius, whose work laid the foundation for what is now  the protein chromatography division of GE Healthcare. At this site, Testa Center recently opened. It’s the world’s first open-access facility for biomacromolecule production at industrial scale. It’s already enabling the upscaling of basic research projects and makes neutron crystallography more accessible to academic research groups.

If you’re interested in hearing what neutron crystallography can reveal and see how Testa Center could play a role in your research, you’re welcome to our “Seeing Hydrogen” workshop on Friday, May 3rd at BMC and Testa Center
