BioCARS Zoom Seminar Series

August, 2020

At BioCARS we feel that during these times when most of our users cannot travel to BioCARS due to COVID-19 restrictions, it is essential to continue communications and scientific discussions. We decided to start BioCARS Zoom Seminar Series to share our user science and developments at our facility. We propose to include topics related to BioCARS experiments and results, both in time-resolved crystallography and X-ray solution scattering. More broadly, we also welcome any general topics of interest to time-resolved X-ray science communities. Please let us know if you are interested to present your work. Also, please forward this information to your colleagues who might be interested. We plan to make seminar presentations available on this web page.
