Laboratory of Biomolecular Research (LBR)
The Laboratory of Biomolecular Research at the Department of Biology and Chemistry at PSI consists of five research groups pursuing basic research projects in the fields of transmembrane signaling and transport and dynamic protein interaction networks. With its close contacts to beamline scientists at the Swiss Synchrotron Light Source (SLS) and its excellent infrastructure, LBR is an attractive environment for Ph. D. students and postdocs interested in structure/function analysis of complex biological systems.

Research Using Synchrotron Light SwissFEL Experiments Human Health
Decoding biomolecules at SwissFEL and SLS
Proteins are a coveted but stubborn research object. A method developed for x-ray free-electron lasers and PSI’s future SwissFEL should now help researchers to make good headway in this field. It involves x-raying many small, identical protein samples consecutively at short intervals, thereby avoiding the main problem that protein research has faced thus far: producing samples in a sufficient size.
