David N. Garboczi, Ph.D.

Chief, Structural Biology Unit

Research Technologies Branch

Major Areas of Research

  • Production of large amounts of highly purified, correctly folded macromolecules
  • Preparation diffraction-quality crystals
  • Determination of structures by X-ray crystallography and other macromolecules

Program Description

The Structural Biology Unit enables intramural NIAID investigators to use state-of-the-art applications in X-ray crystallography in their research programs. We provide expertise, instruction, and instrumentation in X-ray crystallography of macromolecules. Our staff is available to assist in producing the highly purified macromolecules required for growing crystals, in acquiring X-ray data from the crystals, and in using the X-ray data to determine three-dimensional crystal structures.


Our facility is equipped with specialized instrumentation dedicated to the science of structural biology, which entails answering biological questions by investigating the structure of macromolecules.
