The rise of structural virology


New viruses emerge periodically and unpredictably, their impact often widespread and long lasting. In the wake of recent outbreaks such as COVID-19, Zika, and Ebola, there has never been a greater need to understand immune response and to identify and develop therapeutics and vaccines. To do this, virologists and biologists are increasingly turning to cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to perform structural virology studies. 

This groundbreaking technology is overcoming challenges related to virus purification and protein homogeneity and revolutionizing antiviral drug discovery and vaccine design for newly emerging pathogens through unparalleled structural insights.
