Broadening access to high-resolution
cryo-electron microscopy and tomography

The National Service Network for Cryo-Electron Tomography is an NIH-funded consortium whose mission is to deploy the instrumentation and scientific skill sets needed to support the original research efforts of scientific investigators and to train those new to electron tomography. Come learn about our member centers and how you can participate in this initiative.

Learn about the centers

Midwest Center for Cryo-Electron Tomography (MCCET) is the network hub and provides administrative coordination for the network, and supports network users with training and access to equipment for specimen preparation, electron tomography data collection, and data processing and analysis.

National Center for In-situ Tomographic Ultramicroscopy (NCITU) is dedicated to providing access to both standard and advanced methods for in-situ cryoET specimen preparation, and to disseminating this expertise through a cryoET cross-training program designed to serve a wide variety of skill levels and career goals.

Colorado Center for Electron Tomography (CCET) serves as a network spoke center for optimal sample preparation and screening for high-resolution data collection at the NIH funded network HUB.

Stanford-SLAC Cryo-ET Specimen Preparation Center (SCSC) provides access to state-of-the-art instrumentation and knowledge about cryoET specimen preparation. SCSC provides user training and support to increase the ability of the community to perform cryoET experiments, and engages in the developments of new technologies and workflows for cryoET sample preparation.
