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.
The Klaus Schulten Memorial Symposium took place in Champaign-Urbana. It was wonderful to hear wonderful science and personal stories from people Klaus touched in his life! We will continue to miss him and carry on his vision and passion for science!
Martina and Elizabeth attend the NRAMM Workshop on Advanced Topics in EM Structure Determination, the first in NYC! A lot of exciting challenges ahead, specially for cryo-ET!
Elizabeth attends the Bioscience and Philanthropy Summit at the Allen Institute. Great location, fantastic science, and very stimulating interactions!
