Australian Synchrotron Used in Latest Cell Discovery

This month scientists at theWalter and Eliza Hall Institute used the Australian Synchrotron located in Melbourne, Victoria to make a discovery of how a cell dies. The Australian Synchrotron is a complex structure built in 2006 and opened in 2007, that enables scientists to use high intensity light beams to discover the microscopic secrets of life.

Why is this a big thing? In the science of curing cancer, scientists are getting close to finding out how to better kill selective , aggressive cancer cells. They have to understand how certain protein cells kill other cells. It is one thing to speculate how the death is taking place, it is another to see it.
