Professor Marc McKee leads group receiving $3.7M for a new cryo-electron microscope

Published: 16 January 2013

Professors Marc McKee (as lead investigator), Jake Barralet and Maryam Tabrizian, along with Hojatollah Vali as Director of the Facility for Electron Microscopy Research (FEMR) and six others, have received funding for a new cryo-focused ion beam scanning electron microscope.  This nanotechnology instrument allows artifact-free sectioning of essentially any hard or soft material ‒ particularly frozen biological cells and tissues including bones and teeth ‒ for correlative microscopies and 3D ultrastructural and molecular reconstructions.
