We all know that a brush with poison ivy leaves us with an itchy painful rash. Now, Imaging CoE and Harvard researchers have discovered the molecular cause of this irritation. The finding brings us a step closer to designing agents to block this mechanism and sheds light on other serious skin conditions, such as psoriasis.

Imaging CoE Daniel Langley will be working closely with the team at LCLS while learning how to build, run and maintain aerodynamic lens injector systems for use in XFEL experiments.
