Studying Bio-Molecules in Cellular Membranes

July 1, 2012
Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is a leading cause of death in babies up to one month old in the developed world because it makes breathing difficult. Researchers from Brock University use neutron beams to study biomolecules in the hope that it will lead to more effective treatments for RDS and other diseases, and to a molecular-level understanding of what vitamin E does in our bodies.

Understanding Cholesterol as an Essential Nutrient

March 3, 2017
An international research team led by a Brock University scientist used neutron beams to resolve a scientific controversy over how cholesterol behaves when surrounded by unsaturated fatty acids such as “omega-3’s” and “omega-6’s” within cell membranes.
