New imaging facility is a "revolution"
Microscopy at Yale has just received a major upgrade. Structural biologists at the School of Medicine and scientists from across the university have begun obtaining three-dimensional images at near-atomic resolutions from what Jorge E. Galán, Ph.D., D.V.M., chair and Lucille P. Markey Professor of Microbial Pathogenesis and professor of cell biology, calls “the mother of all microscopes.” The Titan Krios cryoelectron microscope arrived at West Campus in January and was dedicated in June.
Yale researchers using new approaches to study cancer, seek treatments
Researchers at Yale University’s West Campus are teaming up to go deep within cells that make up a malignant tumor, looking for ways to fight cancer on the molecular level. At that scale, it’s important to look at systems that molecules make up, rather than looking at them individually, say researchers at the Systems Biology Institute and the Cancer Biology Institute.
