Making science accessible can lead to great discoveries.
A team of University of Saskatchewan researchers are using the Canadian Light Source synchrotron to reveal how cystic fibrosis makes the lungs vulnerable to infection.
The synchroton is no longer emitting any light after a failure of the system’s cooling plant shut down the light source and all research being done at the facility. Research at the Canadian Light Source was brought to a halt last month after the cryoplant, the cooling system for the synchrotron, failed Oct. 6.
The University of Saskatchewan synchrotron will be used in one of four projects around Canada to develop medical isotopes.
