Who we are

The new partnership is built on long-standing and successful collaborations. Our core teams pioneered the special techniques required for SYNAPSE, notably x-ray phase-contrast tomography at micrometer and nanometer scale. In addition to synchrotron facilities, SYNAPSE involves more than 40 other research institutions in biology, materials science, physics, chemistry and engineering from the regional partners.
