Last November, Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute scientist Sarah EJ Bowman, the director of the National Crystallization Center, was an invited speaker and participant in the Electron Diffraction Symposium and Workshop at the National Center for CryoEM Access and Training at the New York Structural Biology Center.

The symposium resulted in a recently published paper in the journal Acta Crystallographica C, Structural Chemistry, entitled Applying 3D ED/MicroED workflows toward the next frontiers. The paper, involving groups from 10 different institutions, describes the latest advancements in electron diffraction for small molecules and proteins, including Dr. Bowman’s contribution on macromolecular electron diffraction. The paper addresses cutting-edge developments in the field and identifies potential avenues for continued progress in this area which can be used to understand disease, and to image potential drugs used for treatment.
