Half a million people die each year in the United States alone due to drug resistant cancers. Our ground-breaking research aims at discovering effective means to treat resistant ovarian cancer and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
X-ray Crysrallography is used in order to identify the atomic and molecular structure of a crystal. This technique is fundamental in the development of many scientific fields and is the primary method for characterizing the atomic structure of new materials, and in discerning materials that appear similar. X-ray crystallography is now used regularly by scientists to ascertain how a pharmaceutical drug interacts with its protein target and what alterations might improve it.
