Peter Ducos leans on his military training to solve complex problems and collaborate with other scientists by exploring molecular structures in exquisite detail.
Genome replication in bacteria frequently breaks down. Scientists at UW–Madison and Morgridge used Cryo-EM to precisely detail how bacterial proteins act like emergency first responders, repairing broken DNA on the fly.
Wisconsin is now an established national leader in cryo-electron microscopy, or cryo-EM, thanks to a decade-long strategic push from the UW–Madison biochemistry department and the Morgridge Institute.
In new research in Nature Communications, the Joshua Coon Lab describes a game-changing advance that unites the power of mass spectrometry with the potential of electron microscopy (EM) — a finding that could transform biotechnology.
Tim Grant is part of a new project supported by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) that hopes to create a three-dimensional map that aligns molecules in their proper neighborhoods within a cell.
A partnership with Genentech is helping Morgridge Investigator Tim Grant improve software that helps scientists harness the incredible power of cryo-EM microscopes for drug discovery.
A national research initiative announced today will place the University of Wisconsin–Madison at the forefront of a revolution in imaging fostered by cryo-electron microscopy and cryo-electron tomography.
Tim Grant, a cryo-electron microscopy pioneer, joins the Morgridge Institute this month as the newest investigator. Grant joins a growing collaboration at UW–Madison where he will use cryo-EM to help biologists see the structure of molecules within cells.
Tim Grant, a research specialist at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s (HHMI) Janelia Farm Research Campus, is the latest addition to the core team.
