Facility Details

The Molecular Electron Microscopy Core (MEMC) is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to high-resolution electron cryomicroscopy and electron cryotomography. It houses three electron microscopes, a 120kV Spirit, a 200kV F20, a 200kV Glacios, and a 300kV Titan Krios. These microscopes are available to researchers either for direct use, or aided by MEMC personnel, to collect data aimed at high-resolution structural biology projects.

Funding: The MEMC is supported in part by the School of Medicine and was built with NIH grant G20-RR31199.

In addition, the Titan Krios (SIG S10-RR025067), Falcon II/3EC direct detector (SIG S10-OD018149), and K3/GIF (U24-GM116790) were purchased in part or in full with the designated NIH grants.
