About the MicroED Center
MEDIC is a technology development center aimed at making MicroED a routine method in structural biology for determining structures of membrane proteins, protein complexes, small molecules, natural products, and materials. The focus is on:
- Enabling MicroED for macromolecular complexes that grow small, fragile, or imperfect crystals.
- Improving of sample screening and preparation methods.
- Novel refinement and phasing methods. We also provide extensive user training including hands-on sessions at the UCLA Imaging Center.
The center hosts the annual MicroED course as well as an annual summit.
