NCCAT Opening Reception

Our reception marks the day NCCAT is ready to serve the nation. Thank you to all who have helped. Our mission is to provide access to cryoEM technical capabilities and assist users in the development of cryoEM skills needed for independent research.

We Are Getting Ready For The NCCAT Opening Reception

Adding the finishing touches ahead of the opening reception today (Nov 7) from 4-6 PM. Looking forward to share our progress building cryoEM infrastructure & providing nationwide access to cryoEM instrumentation and cross-training with you.

Carlos and Vishaka’s Story

Vishaka Santosh finally arrived at the New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC) on Tuesday, February 19 just a few minutes past her Krios loading time. Truly it was remarkable she made it at all, the previous 24 hours had been a lengthy expedition. Vishaka is a post-doctoral fellow in Dr. Carlos Escalante’s lab in the Physiology and Biophysics department at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). They applied to the first cycle in NCCAT’s General User Proposal (GUP) program, which supports single particle cryoEM data collection on one of the Titan Krios instruments at NYSBC. Dr. Escalante’s lab at VCU focuses on the study of the structure and function of proteins and protein-DNA complexes central to transcriptional activation and the initiation of viral DNA [...]
