Our group made a second trip in 2017 to Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) to collect X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) data and characterize the structures of a few human proteins’ metal binding sites. Four undergraduate students (Morgan, Erica, and Kate), one graduate visiting scholar (Ewelina), Dr. Haas and baby Ariana made the trip to meet our collaborator, Jake, at Beamline 7-3. (Thanks to Dr. Haas’s husband for a week of Beamtime Babysitting!)
It was a fun and productive trip! As always, we took advantage of the location to explore local attractions and sample some of Palo Alto’s wonder restaurants.
