Abstract:
FEI (NASDAQ: FEIC), a scientific instruments company, marked the official launch of the new Living Lab for Structural Biology during an event on the NIH campus today.

FEI Launches ‘Living Lab’ for Structural Biology Research at NIH: Official launch of Living Lab scientific program takes place May 23 on the NIH campus.

Hillsboro, OR | Posted on May 23rd, 2012

"This event commences the FEI-NIH Living Lab joint scientific projects. FEI has installed the Titan Krios™ transmission electron microscope (TEM), the world's most powerful commercially-available electron microscope for structural biology, and our onsite team is assembled, including experts in sample preparation, cryo-electron microscopy applications, and Titan Krios operation. We are excited about this program and the great results we expect it will yield for the structural biology research community," stated FEI's President and CEO Dr. Don Kania.

The multi-faceted research program of the Living Lab at NIH includes participation from leading scientists, such as Dr. Sriram Subramaniam, director of the NIH component of the Living Lab, with expertise in cryo-electron microscopy and tomography; Drs. Adriaan Bax and G. Marius Clore, with expertise in NMR spectroscopy; Drs. Fred Dyda and Alex Wlodawer, with expertise in X-ray crystallography; and Drs. Suresh Ambudkar and Stuart Le Grice, with expertise in biochemistry. The capabilities of the Titan Krios for advanced cryo-electron microscopy are expected to effectively complement the work being done at NIH with NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography and help accelerate important medical discoveries relevant to global health challenges such as HIV/AIDS, diabetes and cancer.
