Scientists see inner workings of enzyme telomerase, which plays key roles in aging, cancer

June 6, 2018|UCLA Newsroom|

Cancer, aging-related diseases and other illnesses are closely tied to an important enzyme called “telomerase.” UCLA researchers report in the journal Cell the deepest scientific understanding yet of this once-mysterious enzyme, whose catalytic core — where most of its activity occurs — can now be seen in near atomic resolution.

Berkeley Lab Paves the Way for Real-time Ptychographic Data Streaming

June 4, 2018|Berkeley Lab|

CAMERA/ALS/STROBE Collaboration Yields Novel Image Data Workflow Pipeline. Now an inter-government agency funded collaboration of scientists from Berkeley Lab’s DOE-funded Center for Advanced Mathematics for Energy Research Applications (CAMERA), the ALS and STROBE, the National Science Foundation’s Science and Technology Center, has yielded another first-of-its-kind advance for ptychographic imaging: a software/algorithmic pipeline that enables real-time streaming of ptychographic image data during a beamline experiment, providing throughput, compression and resolution as well as rapid feedback to the user while the experiment is still running.

Photos: Emerging scientists learn about light and energy

May 8, 2018|The Durango Herald|

Dolores School District students… try to figure out what is in the scanning electron microscope after shining a laser beam into it on Tuesday during the Light, Energy and Imaging STEM Workshop inSitter Hall at Fort Lewis College. About 60 students in sixth through 10th grades learned about scale and real-time imaging in the Nano-World, explored photosynthesis and solar energy at the nano-scale and learned about tools that change our perspective on the universe.

UCLA study produces clearest images to date of HSV-1, the virus that causes cold sores

April 13, 2018|CNSI at UCLA|

UCLA researchers have produced the clearest 3-D images to date of the virus that causes cold sores, herpes simplex virus type 1, or HSV-1. The images enabled them to map the virus’ structure and offered new insights into how HSV-1 works. A report on the research was published online by the journal Science. The scientists used cryo electron microscopy, or cryoEM, to obtain the first atomic model of the virus particle, which is made up of more than 3,000 protein molecules comprising tens of millions of atoms.

March 2, 2018|APS TV 2018|

STROBE is featured in an APS TV video about what makes JILA a unique and great place to work. JILA is a unique research and training partnership between the University of Colorado and the National Institute of Standards & Technology. At JILA, scientists develop new research and measurement technologies that broadly advance science and the NIST measurement mission. To date, JILA scientists have been awarded three Physics Nobel Prizes. JILA also trains young innovators who become leaders in industry, academia, and government labs. And after traveling to the many laboratories housed at JILA, APS TV discovers that collaboration amongst its researchers is one of its greatest strengths.
