10 years measuring membranes at the Diamond Light Source

by , ,

Dr Konstantinos Beis’ work at the particle accelerator looks at cell membranes to identify new drug targets and tackle drug resistance.

Diamond Light Source is the UK’s national synchrotron particle accelerator, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire. The synchrotron accelerates electrons through sequences of magnets until they reach almost the speed of light, producing very bright light.

Dr Beis is a researcher in the Department of Life Sciences at Imperial, but has been based at Diamond for 10 years, giving him unprecedented access to the facilities.

In this video, he explains how he and his team are making new discoveries and why being at Diamond is so important.
