Whether using electron or X-ray beams the Macromolecular Structure Knowledge Center (MSKC) strives to help Stanford researchers and beyond in the study of macromolecular structure and function, guiding in the productive use of the world-class instrumentation at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory: SSRL, S2C2, and LCLS
The MSKC functions on the novel hybrid service center-training laboratory model focusing on macromolecular crystallization and other structural studies. Expertise and hands-on training for the production of high-quality samples is provided by the MSKC staff. Researchers interested in using our facility are typically expected to provide manpower.
The MSKC collaborates with PIs from different Schools across Stanford campus and further afield. We also have established links with our industrial colleagues.
