About BioCAT

BioCAT’s Mission: To develop and operate state-of-the-art x-ray facilities for the study of the structure and dynamics of biological systems under non-crystalline conditions similar to their functional states in living tissues.

Overview: The Biophysics Collaborate Access Team (BioCAT) is organized as a National Institutes of Health(NIH) Biomedical Technology Resource and is funded by the National Institute of General Biomedical Sciences (NIGMS). Its primary research tool is a very high brightness X-ray beam-line at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laborator (ANL). BioCAT is a member of Illinois Institute of Technology’s (IIT) Center for Synchrotron Radiation Research and Instrumentation (CSSRI).
