The National Center for Macromolecular Imaging at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, has received a five-year, $9.5 million award from the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) for the development of technology in the field of electron cryo-microscopy.

NCRR, part of the National Institutes of Health, supports scientists and clinical researchers for critical technologies in structural biology, genomics, proteomics, imaging and computing in order to understand, detect, treat and prevent a wide range of diseases.

Baylor said its Macromolecular Imaging Center is an NCRR-designated Biomedical Technology Research Center for Structural Biology and was established 22 years ago at Baylor by Wah Chiu, PhD, professor of biochemistry & molecular biology at Baylor.
