Message from the Director

The overarching goal for the CCMSB is to leverage the outstanding faculty expertise in diverse structural biology disciplines and cutting-edge shared facilities in cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR and EPR), X-ray crystallography, and proteomics toward promoting team science.

Research areas of CCMSB members include cancer, infectious diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, vision loss, and pain; with a common unifying focus on structure and dynamics of biological macromolecules that impact human health.

These collaborative efforts will be geared to bring new federal grants to support research, expand shared instrumentation, and facilitate predoctoral training. An important component of the CCMSB mission is to provide hands-on training in the broad range of structural biology methods to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
