Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) offers the possibility of visualizing biological structures at resolution well beyond that of light microscopy. Whether you are interested in the ultrastructure of cells and organelles, or in the detailed molecular structure of biological macromolecules, different modalities of TEM can generally be applied to your system of interest.

Eva Nogales is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator, a Professor of Molecular Cell Biology at the University of California, Berkeley, and Senior Faculty Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
She obtained her B.S. degree in physics from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (Spain) and did her thesis work at the Synchrotron Radiation Source (U.K.), under the supervision of Joan Bordas, earning a Ph.D. degree from the University of Keele. Her postdoctoral work in Kenneth Downing's group at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory involved the use of electron crystallography to determine the high-resolution structure of tubulin.
