The Villa Lab develops tools to observe macromolecular complexes in their natural environment, the cell. Our ultimate goal is to unveil the structural dynamics of these complexes while they go about their everyday life. We combine cell biology and electron microscopy to generate data, and we use image processing and physical modeling to understand these data.
Our Aquilos is up and running!
We had a wonderful 3rd Annual So-Cal Cryo-EM Symposium with impressive talks by students and postdocs
