  • The Stanford-SLAC Cryo-EM Facility is also being used to aid in COVID-19-related research.
  • Rapid access to LCLS beam time will be prioritized for coronavirus research, with an emphasis on crystals of the proteins bound with known drug candidates.
  • SLAC is involved in efforts by both Stanford and the Department of Energy to help with medical equipment shortages.
