Research Title:
Frontier approaches in electron cryo-diffraction to reveal atomic views of complex macromolecular assemblies

Abstract:
For over a century, methods to determine the structures of macromolecules have driven innovations and discoveries in chemistry, biology, and medicine. Recently, a revolution in electron cryo-microscopy has led to the determination of complex biomolecules at near atomic resolution. I propose to extend the frontier of electron scattering technologies to investigate complex, crystalline and semi-ordered molecular assemblies in full atomic detail using electron cryo-diffraction- based methods and instruments.
