New Cryo-EM at the Southwest Regional Center

The hottest technology in all of science will soon bring a new coolness factor to world-class Arizona State University research.

The coolest new way to take a near-atomic resolution snapshot of life at work is cryo-Electron Microscopy (cryo-EM) – lauded recently by Nature as its 2015 ‘Method of the Year’ – and now coming soon to ASU.  “ASU has been a national leader in atomic-resolution electron microscopy since the 1970s and remains at the cutting edge today, expanding the boundaries of our knowledge in areas such as structural biology,” said Sethuraman “Panch” Panchanathan, chief research and innovation officer and executive vice president at ASU. “The National Science Foundation’s decision to add cryo-EM, and hence biology, to the world-leading electron microscopy facilities at ASU is a testament to both our world-class expertise and our emerging and breakthrough innovations.”
