The W.M. Keck Foundation Advanced Microscopy Laboratory is located at the Mission Bay Campus of the University of California at San Francisco. Housed in Genentech Hall, the goal of this state-of-the-art facility is to develop, in collaboration with the optical group, an integrated approach for imaging, ranging from atomic resolution to whole cells, with emphasis on linking structural and dynamics information with biological functions.
The Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases is located in the Sandler Neurosciences Center on the Mission Bay campus of the University of California San Francisco. Over the past few years, there has been a remarkable and expanding consensus that many- if not all- neurodegenerative diseases are due to the accumulation of prions. The overarching goal of the IND is to develop drugs that stop prion accumulation and thus halt neurodegeneration.
UCSF EMCore - high-resolution structures & high-throughput - By using image-shift data collection, we've achieved physical Nyqvist frequency using our high magnification data collection settings and beyond (> 150%) physical Nyqvist frequency using our lower magnification settings
