State-of-the-art technology giving researchers new opportunities to study the structure of proteins in detail.
The cryoelectron microscope utilises a Nobel Prize winning technology for analysing the structure of proteins. The microscope is supported by a grant from the Novo Nordisk Foundation.
The microscope is physically located at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences of the University of Copenhagen. All researchers at the University, the Science Cluster as well as researchers and other employees in industry all over Denmark will have access to the microscope.
This state-of-the-art technology gives researchers new opportunities to study the structure of proteins in detail, thereby enabling them to better understand and map their function and interaction with other proteins and molecules, including drugs.
