Neutrons Provide the First Nanoscale Look at a Living Cell Membrane

A research team from the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory has performed the first-ever direct nanoscale examination of a living cell membrane. In doing so, it also resolved a long-standing debate by identifying tiny groupings of lipid molecules that are likely key to the cell’s functioning.

How Grade School Science Projects Led to a Career

Kevin Cox wanted to be a medical doctor from the time he was about five years old. He had a passion for helping people, and he especially wanted to help other kids. So he got serious about science in grade school — so serious that he made really good grades on his science projects. And that led him to a difference career, but still in science with a goal of helping people.
