An initial consultation is the first step for any investigator interested in using the Structural Biology Facility. Prospective facility users do not necessarily need to know anything about protein production, crystallization or crystallography, but they should be highly conversant about their research projects and overall objectives.

During this consultation, facility staff will advise on the technical and scientific feasibility of the intended project, provide more information about the facility and its collaborative nature, and give a tour of the facility.

Before requesting a consultation, prospective users can review the Structural Biology Facility's usage guidelines.
