Electron microscopy technology offered at SciLifeLab gets awarded the Nobel Prize

Published: 2017-10-05


On October 4, it was revealed that the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry is awarded Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson for their development of cryo-electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) for the high-resolution structure determination of biomolecules in solution. Cryo-EM technology services is offered at SciLifeLab in Stockholm and Umeå as part of the national infrastructure resource.

SciLifeLab Fellow (Stockholm University/SciLifeLab) Alexey Amunts and his research group further explores the frontiers of the cryo-EM methodology to visualize macromolecules that play key roles in fundamental and medically relevant cellular processes.
