NOTICE: CHESS will be down June 4, 2018 until February 2019 due to the planned CHESS-U upgrade. Please plan for this in your research.
MacCHESS (Macromolecular X-ray science at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source) provides a facility where scientists can use both established and emerging technologies to pursue the goals of the biomedical research community. Work performed at MacCHESS, using tools including e.g. crystallography and small-angle X-ray scattering, yields important insights into fundamental biological processes, such as signaling across membranes, regulation of ion channels in neuronal function, enzyme catalysis, and gene expression.
