Powerful new imaging method reveals in detail how particles move in solution

Published February 28, 2018

An article on PhysOrg reports on new research by Thomas Grant, research assistant professor in UB's Department of Structural Biology and the Department of Materials Design and Innovation, and Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute, that will dramatically improve how scientists “see inside” molecular structures in solution, allowing for much more precise ways to image data in various fields, from astronomy to drug discovery.

"With existing techniques, you can only see the outline of the virus," he said. "This new method allows us to see inside the virus molecule to understand how the genetic information is arranged, potentially giving new insight into how the virus injects this genetic information into its host."
