Center for Structural Genomics of Infectious Diseases

The Center for Structural Genomics of Infectious Diseases (CSGID) applies state-of-the-art high-throughput structural biology technologies to experimentally characterize the three-dimensional atomic structure of targeted proteins from certain pathogens causing emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases.

Midwest Center for Structural Genomics

The primary objective of the Midwest Center for Structural Genomics (MCSG) is to rapidly determine the structures of strategically selected and biomedically important targets, including proteins from pathogens and higher eukaryotes.

Structural Biology Center

The Structural Biology Center (SBC) operates a national user facility for macromolecular crystallography at Sector 19 of the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory. The SBC makes available to the scientific community two experimental stations: an insertion-device (19-ID), and a bending-magnet (19-BM); a biochemistry laboratory is also available on-site.

The Microbiome Center

The Microbiome Center is an intellectual home for researchers across the University of Chicago, the Marine Biological Laboratory, and Argonne National Laboratory to advance understanding of the identity and function of microbes.  The Center supports a dynamic research community, enables rapid translation to private and clinical sectors, and trains a new generation of scientists able to take on fundamental questions about the microbiome.
