A model system exploring ATP synthase reveals that rotation, repulsion and flow can crystallize proteins. It may explain a biophysical mystery in mitochondrial membranes.
It develops, deploys and maintains computational infrastructure — from supercomputers to desktop PCs — dedicated solely to the use of Flatiron researchers.
For distinguished scientists with a particular interest in diversity and inclusion
Scholars may engage in a variety of activities, such as working on scientific projects, starting new collaborations, mentoring junior scientists, and organizing or participating in workshops and career development events.
A major effort of the Flatiron Institute is the development and support of high-quality, open-source software for research.
