Effective July 1, 2020, the CryoEM resources at Yale will be combined into a single functional unit as the Yale CryoEM Resource. This includes instruments currently housed across all three campuses including the Titan Krios on West Campus, the Tecnai T12 and Glacios at YSM and the Talos and Glacios instruments on Science Hill. Over the next few months, this website will be updated to reflect these changes as we transition to the new operational model. In the meantime, more detailed technical information can be found on the legacy websites below and questions can be directed to Dr. Xinran Liu, Interim Director of the Yale CryoEM Resource.

Science Hill location (formerly Science Hill CryoEM facility): Thermo Scientific Talos L120C at Bass Center, Rm 231 (266 Whitney Ave), Thermo Scientific Glacios at Yale Science Building, Rm C133 (260 Whitney Ave)
