NIH Intramural CryoEM Consortium (NICE) serves intramural investigators in all NIH IC’s. NICE provides access to state-of-the-art Titan Krios cryo-electron microscopes for atomic-resolution structure determination of protein, macromolecular complexes, membrane receptors, cellular organelles, and infectious pathogens, using single particle or cryo-tomography approaches. Fine detailed 3D maps computed by electron micrographs spark numerous biological insights in cancer research, infectious disease research, vaccine design, cell development, and human physiological and functional studies.
