Keck commits $1 million to Weill Cornell atomic microscopy project

Weill Cornell Medicine has announced a three-year, $1 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation to fund development of a next-generation high-speed atomic-force microscope (AFM) capable of capturing the dynamics of proteins in unprecedented detail. The project will be led by Simon Scheuring, a professor of physiology and biophysics in anesthesiology at Weill Cornell and director of the school’s Scheuring Bio-AFM-Lab, and will include researchers and scientists from Weill Cornell as well as collaborators from Rockefeller University, the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and Washington University in St. Louis.
