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 [...]
