Sandia’s Bioenergy and Defense Technologies department, which is part of Sandia’s Biological and Materials Sciences Center, supports mission areas in biodefense, emerging infectious disease, and biofuels. The department conducts fundamental research in cell biology, immunology, and microbiology, largely through the development and use of advanced measurement technologies such as fluorescence microscopy, vibrational spectroscopies, X-ray and neutron scattering, and chemometric data analysis tools. Current research projects include understanding receptor activation and cell signaling processes, pathogenesis, plant physiology, cellulase enzymes, as well as algal biochemistry and cultivation characterization for biofuels applications.
