CO2 gas triggers important functions in a vast array of organisms. Mosquitoes use it to seek out prey and the human brain uses it to control our breathing. Dr. Dustin King with Simon Fraser University and colleagues are using the Canadian Light Source (CLS) at the University of Saskatchewan to get a better understanding of this common gas. They are using the CMCF beamlines at the CLS to see how CO2 could provide an opportunity to therapeutically boost our immune systems.
