Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
SSRL user operations are suspended through at least May 4. Contact the User Office if you have questions about how this impacts your experiments, and see SLAC Emergency for site information.
In support of COVID-19 related research
SSRL has as of March 23 resumed operation, under minimum operations mode, only for remote-access research and to support critical COVID-19 related work.
We are currently supporting remote access experiments at SSRL Structural Molecular Biology macromolecular crystallography beam lines BL12-2 and BL9-2, and small-angle x-ray scattering (BioSAXS) at BL4-2, with fast access through our Rapid Access Proposal mechanism.
Please refer to the instructions for submitting a Rapid Access proposal for COVID-19 related studies. For administrative questions contact the SSRL User Research Administration office (link sends e-mail).
Department of Energy Basic Energy Sciences light 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 other partners. This portal collects relevant structural biology resources in a single location, listing their basic characteristics and a point of contact for each (link is external)
