September 2018 - In September, NYSBC placed orders for three new Krios G3i-Cryo transmission electron microscopes. These microscopes will be part of the new National Center for CryoEM Access and Training, which was funded by the NIH Common Fund Transformative High Resolution Cryo-Electron Microscopy program. A new building to house the new instruments is currently being constructed. We expect delivery of the three new microscopes in August, October and December of 2019.
September 2018 - We have started construction of a new 5000SQF space that will be the new home of National Center for CryoEM Access and Cross-Training which was funded by the NIH Common Fund Transformative High Resolution Cryo-Electron Microscopy program. The new space will house 3 new Krios transmission electron microscopes (TEM), several screening TEMs, specimen preparation and other ancillary equipment, and space for staff and visitors to NCCAT. View our construction gallery here.
August 2018 - The National Center for CryoEM Access and Training (NCCAT) is a new cryoEM service center funded by the NIH Common Fund. Located at the Simons Electron Microscopy Center (semc.nysbc.org), which is a part of the New York Structural Biology Center (nysbc.org) in New York City, the mission of NCCAT is twofold: to provide nationwide access to advanced cryoEM technical capabilities, and to assist users in the development of cryoEM skills needed for independent research. We announce the opening of general user proposals (GUPs) for limited early access to instrument time. There will be a rolling call for proposals with quarterly cycles with access starting the beginning of Q4 2018 (October). This initial cycle will support single particle [...]
New York, NY, May 15, 2018 (Newswire.com) - The National Institutes of Health Common Fund announced today major funding for three new national centers for cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM). The New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC), a consortium of nine of New York’s preeminent research institutions1, will receive one of those grants (U24 GM-129539) in the amount of $42 million. NYSBC will expand its current facility located on the CCNY campus to house the new national center. The other national centers will be on the West Coast - at Stanford University and Oregon Health Science University in collaboration with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. These three institutions were chosen after an extensive national competition. A new National Institutes of [...]
