Canadian synchrotron conference sheds light on new biomedical research
Date:6/15/2009

Science fact surpasses science fiction at the Canadian Light Source (CLS) synchrotron's 12th Annual Users' Meeting Thursday, June 18 at the Radisson Hotel in Saskatoon. Conference participants will hear about some of the newest biomedical results from the CLS, as well as ways that synchrotron techniques are lighting the way to advances in environmental clean up and nanotechnology.

Highlights include:

  • Presentations by CLS users on using the synchrotron to study esophageal tumours, prion diseases such as BSE, watch nerves regenerate and treat tuberculosis
  • Applications of synchrotron techniques to agricultural research, developing bioproducts and bioremediation
  • Studying nanomaterials and materials at extreme conditions

Science fact is preceded by a free public lecture "Science Fiction as a Mirror for Reality" by internationally renowned science fiction author and CLS writer-in-residence Robert J. Sawyer on Wednesday, June 17 at 7 pm at the Frances Morrison Library Theatre.
