Recent Research from our AMRIS Facility

Potentially useful compound found in worms opens door to discovery of countless more.

Identification of the chemical structures of the nemamides will enable their biosynthesis in the worm to be studied

Recent Research from our DC Field Facility

With a sufficiently high magnetic field, scientists can manipulate certain phase transitions in some molecules, a discovery that hints at future technological applications.

When placed in a high magnetic field (B), the molecules straightened out significantly.

At the MagLab, our research pertains to materials, energy and life.

Materials Research

Scientists and engineers are on a quest to make products smaller, faster, smarter and stronger. New materials are at the center of this race: They enable the high-tech products that have changed your life and will continue to change it in ways you cannot yet imagine.

Life Research

Scientists working at the MagLab use powerful magnets to learn more about living structures and investigate disease.

Energy Research

Creating, storing and conserving energy — a product for which there is a limited supply and nearly unlimited demand — has been a topic of global conversations for decades.
