HWI staff in Chicago help Pfizer create an effective COVID-19 treatment
Our team at the Advanced Photon Source have helped Pfizer create a COVID-19 treatment. The new drug candidate, Paxlovid, significantly reduced hospitalization and death in adult patients, according to Pfizer, and will be submitted for an emergency use authorization in the United States.
The Institute is home to the National Crystallization Center
This Five-year award from NIH brings prestige, jobs, investment to Western New York and recognizes almost two decades of our developments in this area. The National Crystallization Center provides access to state-of-the-art robotic instrumentation, advanced imaging technologies, and expertise in crystallization to the scientific community supporting both academia and industry.
The Center is actively involved in the fight against COVID-19.
We are hiring
Three new positions have recently been posted for motivated individuals to join a dynamic and welcoming team. Help make a difference. We are looking for a Business Director to grow the research services, a research engineer in Chicago, and an Operations Manager in the National Crystallization Center.

HWI Young Professionals Program
Helping understand drug clearance from the bloodstream and harmful interactions between drugs.
Many drugs are toxic in high concentrations, therefore they are administered in specific doses that ensure drug activity without side-effects or even acute and lethal reactions.
HWI helping build the next generation of scientists.

Structural biology at the center of COVID-19 scientific efforts
Synergy between X-ray crystallography, cryoelectron microscopy and computational methods has led to critical advances indispensable to developing treatments for infection and vaccines for prevention.
Accurate identification of metals in proteins.
Many proteins contain metals. Accurate identification of these is a prerequisite to understanding the biological mechanism and curing disease. An international team co-led by Dr. Snell developed a sensitive method to accurately determine both the metal type and position using very small volumes of protein.
Dr. Diana Monteiro is working with an international collaboration of scientists from the University of Buffalo, Germany, and France to develop new tools allowing us and others to understand how life works.
Join our team.
A welcoming group in a dynamic environment utilizing cutting-edge techniques to advance science for generations.
HWI is a 73,000 square foot state-of-the-art research facility focused on Structural Biology. It is one of the founding members of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. Tours are unavailable during the COVID-19 pandemic but our scientists are working hard to reach a point where we overcome this. We hope to show the public how our research has helped to combat the virus and many diseases that impact us today.
