About the EM Facility

We help researchers elucidate the intermolecular interactions and domain architectures of macromolecules within their native cellular assemblies. Our advanced instrumentation and staff expertise support the determination of protein structures by single-particle reconstruction and 2-D crystallography, and organelles and tissues by tomography and FIB/SEM.
