Enabling COVID-19 Research

In light of the rapidly changing situation world-wide resulting from the COVID-19 virus, the Department of Energy Basic Energy Sciences light and neutron sources want to ensure they are doing everything possible to enable research into this virus and the search for an effective vaccine or other treatment. The DOE supports research into structural biology in partnership with the National Institutes of Health, and universities. This portal collects relevant structural biology resources in a single location, listing their basic characteristics and a point of contact for each.

Researchers who would like to use these resources should reach out to that point of contact. Depending on the number and nature of the requests, the facilities will make every effort to give the researchers priority access.

Researchers who are unsure of which resource is best suited to their needs should reach out to the facility contacts below to discuss their project.
