Proposal Submission

 

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), through its National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), funds MacCHESS for two purposes: core research as motivated by the important biomedical problems and support to all structural biologists making use of the CHESS facility for crystallographic and small-angle X-ray scattering experiments, as well as for novel experiments requiring special equipment and staff assistance not readily available at other synchrotron sources. Macromolecular Diffraction at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (MacCHESS) provides a facility for developing new technology and for advancing the research goals of structural biologists as well as the broader biological research community. MacCHESS has a strong commitment to training future leaders, who will be able to translate advances in synchrotron science and structural biology into valuable biomedical applications. Guidance in determining MacCHESS's major emphases is provided by the MacCHESS Advisory Committee.
