HWI helping build the next generation of scientists.
Dr. Darya Marchany Rivera is shown preparing for the collection of X-ray data at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory.

Research

Accurate identification of metals in proteins.
Many proteins contain metals. Accurate identification of these is a prerequisite to understanding the biological mechanism and curing disease. An international team co-led by Dr. Snell developed a
 sensitive method to accurately determine both the metal type and position using very small volumes of protein.

Research

Helping others crystallize proteins.
Drs. Sarah Bowman & Miranda Lynch and intern Max Dudek have their work featured on the cover of the journal.

Research

Developing new tools to study the dynamics of proteins.
Dr. Diana Monteiro is working with an international collaboration of scientists from the University of Buffalo, Germany, and France to develop new tools allowing us and others to understand how life works.
