Advances in microscope technology and computing have paved the way for cryo-electron microscopy to move structural biology into a new era — allowing scientists to study the form and function of biological "machines" that are too large to study using X-ray crystallography.
The U-M Life Sciences Institute is home to a world-class cryo-EM laboratory, with state-of-the-art instruments and faculty specializing in this emerging field.
U-M is hiring two new cryo-EM faculty as part of the Biosciences Initiative. We're looking for specialists in correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM) and cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET). Learn more.
Starting today, we'll be using MiCores/iLab to schedule time on the microscopes.

Current status: All instruments are available for use.
Talos Arctica K2 is in service however so only ceta camera is available for use.
