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:

  1. Enabling MicroED for macromolecular complexes that grow small, fragile, or imperfect crystals.
  2. Improving of sample screening and preparation methods.
  3. 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.
