Welcome to the Cryo Electron Microscopy (Cryo EM) Core at UNC
We are committed to providing researchers at UNC-Chapel Hill with the resources, training, and technical assistance required to conduct high-resolution cryoEM experiments.
We obtain on-going support from the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center through the University Cancer Research Fund and the Cancer Center Support Grant. Consequently, publications supported by the UNC Center for Structural Biology must acknowledge NIH grant P30CA016086 and be submitted to PubMed Central in compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy.
Suggested acknowledgment: “This work was supported by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health under award number P30CA016086. The content is solely the responsibility of the authors and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.”
