Laboratory of Structural Electron Microscopy of Biological Systems

About Lab

The laboratory uses the state-of-the-art techniques of cryo-electron microscopy and macromolecular X-ray crystallography to solve important biological questions and outstanding challenges in the field of cross-membrane transport.

The scientific infrastructure of the laboratory includes:

  • The research platform based on the cryoelectron microscope Tecnai Polara G2, which includes all the necessary equipment for efficient and reproducible sample preparation.
  • 
High-performance computing resources for the implementation of algorithms for the analysis and processing of data obtained using cryoelectronic microscopy.

The laboratory serves as a bridge to coordinate research in the field of biophysics and medicine using cryo-electron microscopy, conducted at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and also in collaboration with Russian and foreign research organizations.
