An initial consultation is the first step for any investigator interested in using the X-ray Crystallography Core. Prospective core users do not necessarily need to know anything about protein production, crystallization or crystallography, but should be highly conversant about their research projects and overall objectives.

During this free consultation, James R. Thompson, Ph.D., core director, will advise on the technical and scientific feasibility of the intended project, provide more information about the core and its collaborative nature, outline the fee structure, and give a tour of the lab.

Before requesting a consultation, prospective users can review the X-ray Crystallography Core's usage guidelines. Schedule a consultation by contacting Dr. Thompson.
