The SRS closed in 2008, having pioneered many of the techniques and research areas in the X-ray region which were taken up by the Diamond Light Source, shown below. An editorial in the Journal of the International Union of Crystallography can be found here; also shown below are the opening of the Barkla X-ray Laboratory of Biophysics, and the inauguration of Professor Samar Hasnain as the first holder of the Max Perutz chair of Biophysics at Liverpool University.
