Molecular Microscopy Consortium


The Molecular Microscopy Consortium allows scientists from NIEHS, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Duke University to use single particle cryo-electron microscopy and other tools in molecular microscopy to solve macromolecular structures at the atomic level. Cryo-EM requires smaller quantities of material than other structural methods and is especially suitable for the study of hard to crystallize large macromolecular complexes and membrane proteins.


Types of projects we do:

  • Data collection
  • Specimen preparation
  • Experimental design advice and training
  • Image processing and interpretation

NIEHS Shared and Core Facilities are available to NIH researchers. Information for staff on utilizing these services may be found on the NIEHS Junction or by contacting the staff below.
