Two NIH Institutes Will Fund New Synchrotron Beamlines

BETHESDA, Maryland—Two National Institutes of Health (NIH) units will jointly fund the design and construction of three new synchrotron beamlines as a way to increase x-ray crystallography studies of proteins.

The National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences expect the $23 million project to be fully operational in about 3 years. The three beamlines will be added to the new Advanced Proton Source at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois.
