An international research team led by a Brock University scientist used neutron beams to resolve a scientific controversy over how cholesterol behaves when surrounded by unsaturated fatty acids such as “omega-3’s” and “omega-6’s” within cell membranes. Continue reading Understanding Cholesterol as an Essential Nutrient
Fundamental research that uses neutron beams to investigate how our bodies work may lead to better health outcomes in the future by shedding light on our understanding of cholesterol and Aspirin.

Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) is a leading cause of death in babies up to one month old in the developed world because it makes breathing difficult. Researchers from Brock University use neutron beams to study biomolecules in the hope that it will lead to more effective treatments for RDS and other diseases, and to a molecular-level understanding of what vitamin E does in our bodies.
