More Swedish involvement in building the European Spallation Source
The European Spallation Source (ESS) is a European project to build the world’s most powerful neutron source in Lund. The NMX Macromolecular Diffractometer is the only instrument at ESS dedicated to structural biology – an area of research that is topical and urgent, for example for drug discovery and vaccine development. In this project the Swedish involvement in the ESS is increased by integrating NMX Lead Scientist Esko Oksanen to the Division of Theoretical Chemistry at Lund University as Swedish in-kind contribution. Sweden has a strong scientific community in structural biology, so it is therefore exciting to involve this community even more in the instrument project.
