Abstract

Neutron beams from research reactors have had a lasting impact on our knowledge of biology well beyond radiation or medical physics. Neutron scattering is exquisitely sensitive to the position, concentration, and dynamics of hydrogen atoms in materials, and is a powerful tool for the characterization of structure-function and interfacial relationships in biological systems. In my experience, the wide range of experiments on proteins and membranes where I have used neutrons have gone on to inform the knowledge base of cell biology, molecular causes of disease, and nutrition.
