Cutting-edge institutions are moving to cryo-EM
Leading universities across the world are building state-of-the-art cryo-EM facilities, giving their researchers access to this leading-edge technology. With a highly detailed understanding of viruses, molecules, and complex biological machines inside the cell, institutions have the opportunity to develop new vaccines and medications that fight disease.
Says James Whisstock, professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Monash University, "It became very clear to me that the future of structural biology was going to incorporate, to a very large degree, electron microscopy. And if we weren't in this game, as structural biologists we would very rapidly be left behind by those that were."
While adoption of cryo-EM is growing, obtaining the resources needed to build a cryo-EM lab can be a challenge. Thermo Fisher Scientific will work with your organization to remove the barriers so you can begin investing in this cutting-edge technology.
