CryoEM Facility Director Over the past five years UT Southwestern Medical Center has made major investments in cryoelectron microscopy, building a state-of-the-art facility that houses two FEI microscopes, a Titan Krios and Talos Arctica, each equipped with a K3 direct electron detector and Volta phase plate. Two additional similarly-equipped FEI microscopes, a Titan Krios and Glacios, will be installed in a second, newly renovated location in the summer of 2020. These instruments serve a vibrant community of scientists using both single-particle and tomographic methods to determine structures of molecules and their assemblies in vitro and in frozen cells.
