Science Careers in Search of Women Conference, Tour of BioCARS

On April 14, 2016, ANL hosted the annual Science Careers in Search of Women Conference and CARS helped facilitate.  Female high school students were given the opportunity to learn more about STEM careers, in an effort to increase the representation of women in the science and technology fields.  At BioCARS, the students spoke to Dr. Vukica Srajer about time-resolved macromolecular crystallography BioCARS.  Students walked away with a better understanding of the synchrotron facilities and importance of macromolecular crystallography for understanding structure and function of biological molecules, essential for addressing important questions related to human health.
