$8.1m cryogenic-electron microscopy centre now open in New York


A new $8.1m cryogenic-electron microscopy centre has opened at the Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.

Established to accelerate the treatment of disease, the new facility features cryogenic-electron microscopy technology and will service the biotech and pharmaceutical industry sciences.

An installed cryo-electron microscope will allow researchers and clinicians to take a unique look at proteins, which are the basic machinery of life and the targets of pharmaceuticals.

Cryo-electron microscopes flash-freeze proteins in motion and then use a beam of electrons to visualise what those proteins look like. Cryogenic-electron microscopy has accelerated discovery times from what has been decades, in some instances, to months or less.
