Molecular Cryo-Electron Microscopy Unit

The Molecular Cryo-Electron Microscopy Unit investigates the structure of macromolecular complexes with an emphasis on viruses, ion channels, and membrane proteins. The unit seeks better understanding of macromolecular functions that govern important processes such as infection and cellular signaling, as well as improvements in specimen preparation and image processing. In addition, the unit explores novel techniques to obtain a detailed three-dimensional map of brain tissues at unprecedented resolutions.
